Wednesday 23 June | 10:45am - 4:30pm | £130
Design and paint a pattern for a home textile! Under the guidance and expertise of textile pattern-painter Sarah Campbell, you’ll leave this workshop with enough hand painted cloth to perk up your home and make an accessory of your choice – a cushion, a wall-hanging or throw.
In this one-day workshop, participants will start by playing 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 10 participants) through understanding mark making, colour balance and tonal contrast. You’ll be encouraged to consider your own colour harmonies and spend time experimenting with colourfast textile inks on fabric.
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 and sketchbooks too.
Sarah Campbell Ltd undertakes a wide range of projects from one-off design creations, unique pieces, paintings and commissions to textile, surface and ceramic 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.
Price: £130 includes materials* and exhibition entry.
*A selection of fabric paints, paper, linen to practice and one linen piece for the finished piece. Please bring a bag to take your work home with you.
