Creative Stitch Class 10am

Creative Stitch and Textiles

This is a relaxed and friendly course. It offers a combination of techniques such as batik, felting and machine sewing along with more traditional hand embroidery. This term we will be experimenting with marbling techniques and taking them forward into an applique piece of work. 

This term we are doing a button project.  We are looking in particular at a Vietnamese artist called Phan Thu Trang. She paints landscapes of rural life using pointilism. We will be using various techniques along with buttons, beads and stitching.  A brief will be given and Claire will have examples for everyone to look at at the beginning of the term.

On the first day students will only need a pen or pencil to make notes. Claire will have a printed copy of the project to hand out, as the first class is normally a lot of discussion about ways to approach the project.
Riverhouse doesn’t supply materials for the class but Claire can always bring something for people who don’t have relevant bits and bobs at home.

Tutor: Claire Grahame
Cost: £95 (ten weeks)
