I will be running a mixed media embroidery course in the Drawing Room at Leeds Central Library. The course will be structured over six sessions, starting on Saturday 1 June. During the course you will learn how to use techniques like applique, free-motion embroidery and collage. You will use a variety of materials like fabric, paper and found objects to create experimental textiles.
The course will show you how to research, using the beautiful using the Art Library collections as your inspiration. You will develop a series of samples and produce a journal which records the processes you have learnt and inspire your future projects.
All materials and equipment will be provided along with Tea and Coffee. The course will run over six consecutive weeks: 1 June, 8 June, 15 June, 22 June, 29 June and 6 July from 1.30pm to 4pm. Click here to book your place through Ticketsource
