This is a fully guided tour with Jacky as your host and Caroline Sharkey as your Tutor

Textile Art in Vivid Colour
‘Textile Art in Vivid Colour’

Create-Make-Design and Have Fun!

Embellishing the surface is Caroline’s way of creating textures that are interesting and change the way you, as the viewer, look at fabric.

Stitching into the surface changes the palette, and adding colours will bring your artwork to like.

Caroline’s approach in her art practice is to chop the fabrics into small confetti styles pieces, and then mix the colours and textures to create beautiful new fabrics. She uses raw edge applique and thread painting to enhance these surfaces.

Caroline is passionate about teaching her techniques of fabric embellishments and textured surfaces and loves to inspire and encourage everyone to experience the creative side of Textile Art.

Caroline will take you though her style of textile art and how to choose and use your fabrics. One of the days will be spent shopping for fabrics, threads and embellishments that would be ideal for your wall hanging.

Caroline will be tutoring for 6 days

Caroline shares her passion for Textiles, Colour and Creating.

Participants will learn new ideas to enhance a project of surface design

in a fun environment of creativity.

The Projects in this workshop will each have an individual flavour while covering many different techniques but the main ingredient will be fun while creating.
