Teaching Schedule and Class Requirements

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Readers

Thank you for your interest in my work. Now that I have officially retired as a health professional earlier this year,  art design and facilitating  textile art workshops has become my major focus and I am  teaching more broadly both within Victoria and interstate. I am also co-director of the Red Door Gallery on Fraser here in Clunes Victoria and run a working studio adjacent my home.

The first six months of 2018 has been very busy but happy to be working on a draft teaching schedule  for the next 6 months. See below a tentative outline as the second half of the year progresses. Please also follow me on Facebook and Instagram for updates and new classes as they come to hand and if you are booking in to any of my workshops  please contact me  or the host venue for more details regarding class requirements.

Once again many thanks for your wonderful feedback, encouragement and  ongoing support. I look forward to your company during the next 6 months.  

Much love and creativity Cxx

‘Making Art With Textiles’ – Requirements

Finished Size – Variable – Personal choice

In this workshop you will produce pieces of textile art that can be variable in size and used/displayed in a variety of ways. For example if your work is smaller in size you may use them as a gift card/s or a mini canvas. If you choose to complete a larger piece of work it would be very suitable for framing. You can also apply your work to soft furnishings such as  art quilts,  pillows, chair covers etc. It is a versatile technique that also has a variety of applications in fashion such as bags and border designs on skirts

Materials – The beauty of making art with textiles is you often use what is available to you and do not to go and purchase extras. Re-purposing left over pieces of fabric, fibres (e.g. paper) and items you have in your basic sewing kit are adequate to produce a lovely piece of work. However there a some basic things you will need to bring to class. They are as follows;

  • A range of embroidery threads – This may include regular sewing machine threads, DMC Cotton Perle, wool, linen, silk and even some string for added texture.
  • Water soluble fabric glue
  • Marking tools, tailors chalk, white pencil,/marker, fabric pencil, water soluble marker
  • Fabric scissors
  • General purpose scissors
  • Fine point embroidery scissors
  • Embroidery needles (of your choice)
  • Short applique pins
  • Sewing machine with a darning foot. (** Bring instructions manual and/or have good working knowledge of your machine
  • Black cotton/polyester thread (or colour of choice)

Optional

  • A favourite printed fabrics from your left overs basket (your choice of colour/s)
  • Something special (an old piece of linen/fabric e.g. doilies, a handkerchief, tea towel, tablecloth, dress)
  • Freezer paper approx. 10” x 10”
  • Iron on fusible webbing approx.10” x 10”
