About the workshop:

During this inspiring and friendly session you’ll begin with exploring through doodles, and experimenting with layered surfaces, leading to a finished piece.
Lots of different fabrics, papers, threads and images for inspiration will be available for you to use to create your unique piece of textiles art, but please feel free to bring along your own images and fabric for a personal project.

At the end of the workshop you will have your own unique textile art piece to take away with you

About the artist:
Julie French is a local textiles artist and textiles teacher. She exhibits and sells regularly in Sussex
and London and is a member of the Society of Embroidered Work and the Sussex Guild
“I’m enticed by the unpredictable nature of stitch and the way it responds to the surface you apply it
to. I’m always learning through experimentation, and even though I might use the same drawing
multiple times, by using different surface no outcome is ever the same.”
