Painted Marks on Paper

Sketchbook for Textiles – 18 July

If you would like to design your own stitch projects then come and spend a day learning how to kick-start your ideas and get them down on paper

We’ll explore paint, rubbings, resists, print, collage and mark making to produce a sketchbook full of ideas.

See your designs develop as you grow in confidence and take home a sketchbook full of inspiration to develop into stitch


The Early Bird catches the worm, and if you arrive before the course starts at 10am you are welcome to join us for tea / coffee and home made biscuits, still warm from the oven. There is no additional charge for our ticket holders.

  • Who Is This Course For?
  • I would like to know how to design my own textiles
  • I would like to learn about mark making
  • I want to make my own ideas book
  • I prefer a relaxed setting and friendly teaching
  • Who Is This Course Not For?
  • I am happy to follow a pattern
  • I don't like to experiment with new ideas
  • I am not happy using unconventional materials
  • I want a very formal classroom style and exams


If you are thinking about it don't think, just do. It will be an amazing way to spend a few hours, day or weekend. I only wish I could be there more often.
