(Online Event)- Explore Colour, Pattern and Creative Recycling with Textile Art - 4 week online course with Jessica Grad

This 4-week online course looks at the potential of mixed media materials and ways to use and explore colour, patterns and textures to create textile art samples. During the 4 weeks, artist Jessica Grady will take you through a selection of her techniques to create exciting and creative results playing with recycled materials, textiles, embroidery and mark-making skills. This course is suitable for anyone who wants to get creative and try something new with no previous experience needed. You will leave the course with a treasure trove of samples on paper, fabric and other materials - as well as a finalised textile art design - and plenty of ideas and inspiration to put forward in other projects!
Week 1: Playing with Colour and Pattern on paper
Week 1 is all about starting ideas looking at ways to create shapes and patterns on paper surfaces with collage and mark-making ideas. Jessica will introduce ways to add simple hand embroidery into your papers, as well as how to layer and combine shapes and add further textures with coloured pens and pencils on paper.
Week 2: Creative Hand Embroidery + Unusual Threads
Week 2 is all about looking at simple hand embroidery stitches and the way they can be altered to make different shapes and textures on fabric. Jessica will also show alternative ideas with thread and yarn substitutes such as stitching with recycled wires, elastic bands and recycled plastic strips.
Week 3: Embellishments + 3D Textures on Fabric
Week 3 is how to add and build embellishments; this builds on using skills with embroidery from week 2. Jessica will demonstrate how you can manipulate materials to create layering and 3D embellishment ideas.
