What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
- A selection of materials and basic equipment will be provided but you are welcome to bring additional materials with you - You may also wish to bring a box or folder to keep your work & transport it to and from the centre - It would be helpful if you had access to the internet for research
Course aim:
To provide a practical introduction to a range of textile craft processes and techniques, with an opportunity to learn new skills and produce experimental pieces, which will inform the creation of a personal project.
Course description:
Discuss and explore a range of textile crafts in this friendly course. We will work practically and experimentally with processes, materials and techniques and explore the links between textiles and art. You will have the opportunity to suggest and select practical projects collaboratively with your group - these may include fabric printing, fabric surface manipulation, layering, weaving, dyeing, silk painting, rag rugging, felting, crochet or embroidery. We will discuss selected creative practitioners who use and adapt these techniques for inspiration. There will also be a chance to combine techniques and work on an independent, textile project.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Identify and demonstrate the safe and creative use of at least 2 different forms of stitch
2. Complete at least two samples which explore fabric manipulation, construction or embellishment
3. Identify and select appropriate tools and materials for an independent textile project, including sewing kit items whilst considering fabric and thread types
4. Plan and explain design choices in your own and others' work, considering subject matter, texture, motif, colour, scale, pattern, line & embellishment
5. Work as a group and individually to identify, select, develop, realise and reflect on projects of interest
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.
