Explore Design Stitch

This two day course begins with a walk along the tideline gathering visual information to use back in the studio. We then explore design through mark making, picking up on the colours, textures and shapes found outside the studio. The afternoon will be spent preparing fabrics and yarns with man made and Eco-dyes ready for day two, which is all about transferring your ideas onto fabric and exploring basic hand stitching.

No prior knowledge is necessary and all materials will be provided.  You will take home a sketchbook bursting with ideas and plenty of samples to inspire future projects.

This two day course costs £200 and includes tuition, materials, lunch and refreshments. The course runs from 10am until 4 pm each day.

"I have been on many courses but my experience at Shore Cottage was just magical........ I achieved much more during my two days than I would ever have imagined."

"This was a really wonderful course in a spectacular setting. ..... Life affirming."
