Explore your inner artist through textiles in this entirely enjoyable and immersive workshop.

Participants will have the opportunity to create pictures or interpretations utilising a full range of textiles, haberdashery and flotsam and jetsam!!! The end result will be an artistic landscape or portrait in textiles which you can frame or apply to a cushion, bag or personal item of your choice. This session will also incorporate freehand machine embroidery and introduce a range of artistic approaches to applique.

In ReTweed’s core training programmes, applique is the most positively reviewed session for our students. It has artistic elements, a therapeutic dimension and a wonderful end result.

The workshop will be led by our resident Artist, Terry Howson “Colour excites me, pleases me, calms me and frees my mind from crowded information. When people tell me that they may not know about Art but they know what they like, I want to applaud. Art is, quite literally in the eye of the beholder and if it pleases you then it has done its job.”

Terry has designed and delivered a wide range of art, design, interior design and upholstery courses around the world and for us here at ReTweed. We’re entirely chuffed to have her here delivering workshops throughout our Autumn Term.
