Wednesday 17 November | 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, stationery and ceramic design for the high street. She has recently begun a relationship in the US with Free Spirit producing new fabric ranges, with the first collection ‘FreshPicked‘ now available to order, shipping in early 2022, and a second hot on its heels. Here in the UK a new relationship with Museums&Galleries has opened with a widely available range of stationery, cards and gift-wraps, and Stringberry offer a range of mobile phone cases with Sarah’s designs too. Along with her teaching, Sarah is currently working on a book about painting on fabric to be published in the autumn of 2022.
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.
