Textile Art Part 2

Deborah Manson
£160

Join artist Deborah Manson for Part Two of a stimulating year long textile art course which will introduce you to experimental and creative approaches to making textile art.

The full course will be delivered over three terms (8 weeks per term), each with a different theme. The three terms are independent and there is no obligation to sign up for all three.

 

Part 2 – Botanical print

In Part 2 the focus will be on natural approaches to print. You will learn how to make botanical printing pastes from plant extracts, foraged and waste plant materials. You’ll print onto paper and cloth using paper stencil screen printing techniques experimenting with shape, pattern and overprint. You’ll also experiment with contact print bundle dyeing. You will record your processes through samples and document your journey in a sketchbook.

Part 3 (In brief)
Part 3 will focus on natural dye, patchwork and stitch, reuse and making textile objects.

Textile art is suitable for both beginners, continuing students and those with previous experience. Previous students have used Deborah’s courses to rekindle their creative practice, build a textile portfolio for university arts applications, learn new skills and meet like-minded people.

Red & White Rooms

Most materials are supplied although students will need to bring the following materials along:

  • A range of lightly coloured fabrics, 100% cotton, linen, silk or wool.
  • PLEASE NOTE : COTTON /LINEN FABRICS MUST BE PRE WASHED AT A HIGH TEMPERATURE, SILK, WOOL MUST ALSO BE PREWASHED.
  • Rubber gloves
  • Foraged / waste plant materials as instructed
  • Drawing materials /brushes
  • Phone camera

Deborah is an artist and maker based in East Sussex. Her practice is studio based and incorporates collage, drawing, print and textiles – including growing and processing her own natural dyes. Her aesthetic – lo-fi, handmade, imperfect, incorporating inexpensive paper, re purposed textiles and natural dye – evolves from her interest in age old craft techniques and the cross overs between art and craft. Her work is informed by the belief that artists have a responsibility to make conscious decisions about materials, approaches to making and their impact on the environment. Deborah studied Visual Communication at Central at Central St Martins and went on to work as a designer and teacher. In 2016 she gained her MA in textiles from Chelsea college of art.
