Wednesday 24 April | 11.15am – 4.30pm (Fully Booked)
Design and paint a pattern for a home textile with Sarah Campbell. Under the guidance and expertise of textile pattern-painter Sarah Campbell you will leave this workshop with enough hand painted cloth to perk up your home and make an accessory of your choice – a bag, a cushion, a wall-hanging or throw.
In this one-day workshop, Sarah will show samples of her own hand-painted textiles; participants will then start by sketching their schemes out on paper with guidance on how to consider shape, colour, motifs and form when designing a pattern for a home textile. Sarah will guide the small group (maximum 10participants) through understanding mark making and composition. Participants will be encouraged to consider their own colour harmonies and spend time experimenting with colourfast textile inks on linen or calico.
People of all abilities and skill levels are welcome and there’ll be no pressure to produce finished work – it’s a day to enjoy an inspiring time and to learn and practise new skills to take home. All materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own favourite brushes, paints references and sketchbooks too.
Sarah Campbell Ltd undertakes a wide range of projects from one-off design creations, unique pieces and commissions to textile and surface design for the high street. Her continuing collaboration with West Elm, the US homewares company, gives a worldwide presence, as do the growing fabric collections with Michael Miller Fabrics. Nearer home, new work includes developing the Sarah Campbell Designs brand into fabrics, wallpapers and ribbons, expanding teaching commitments, and working on new book ideas. Meanwhile she continues to write a diverting blog.
