During this workshop you will explore colour, mark-making, collage and stitch, working on fabric to produce a small textile art piece.

This is a fun and experimental workshop that looks at the design elements of colour, texture, pattern, scale and composition.

You will select from a diverse range of colours then, using a variety of mark-making tools, create an exciting array of distinctive, abstract marks and shapes over several pieces of fabric.

Time will then be given to exploring and selecting areas of interest in your fabrics before cutting and placing onto a background, considering composition, colour and pattern. You will then hand stitch your pieces to produce a small, framed, finished art textile piece.”

Kathryn Green

Kathryn is a textile artist and tutor, specialising in dye and print processes to create organic, layered and textural art textile pieces for exhibition, in addition to capsule collections of wearable art and interior accessories.

The landscape provides a constant and enduring inspiration to which she returns time and again. Having travelled extensively over the years, Kathryn enjoys drawing on the cultures, patterns, textures and colours of these remarkable places. Joy and inspiration can also be found in old objects and the concept of the traces that remain from previous and continuous use. She continues to develop her approach to textiles through exploration and experimentation with textile processes.

Having obtained a First-class degree in textiles, she went on to qualify as a tutor, taught in Further & Higher education for several years and now teaches regularly from her studio and various other venues.

She has exhibited at Jagged Art Gallery, London, Found Gallery, Wales, New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth, and was commissioned by Glyndebourne Opera to create a collection exclusively for them.

She is a member of the Hampshire & Berkshire Guild of Craftsmen with whom she also exhibits.
