About the course

11-16 and interested in Craft and Textiles? Come along and experiment and play with a range of textile techniques. Whether you’ve done this before or not, there’s something for all lovers of craft! You’ll work with a professional artist to learn the skills to make your own piece of textile artwork. You’ll create your own fabric, experiment with paint and dye and play with a wide (and unusual!) range of fabrics and recycled materials. You’ll also learn hand sewing techniques and develop skills in using sewing machines to create a piece of artwork for your wall.

We will be working through the Bronze Arts Award, a great Level 1 qualification which everyone will achieve by the end of the course. At the end of term we will have an online showcase of the artwork you have produced alongside the work from the two other Creative Courses.

How does it work?

Every Wednesday the group will log on to Zoom (a video call service) so we can go through a 'how to' guide of the next steps and also see what everyone has done over the last few days. Then on Thursday afternoon we will arrange a time to have an individual catch up with you so if you need specific help or have any questions about what to do we can go over it 1:1 with you.

As this is an online course we will give you as much support as we can over Zoom but it's important that you are happy and able to do some of the work on your own at home. You will need to be able to access Zoom via a computer/tablet/mobile phone, we will help you get set up with this before the course starts.
