This course will explore a varied range of textile-based skills and processes to create your own pieces of textile art. Over the 10 weeks you will learn hand embroidery, free machine (free motion) embroidery and applique as well as sublimation heat transfer printing. The layout of the course will enable you to explore a variety of techniques, and then put these into practice by creating your own textile samples through the second half of the course. This course is perfect for those who have an interest in textiles and textile art, and want to learn a variety of skills they can take away and continue working with at home. It is most suitable for those with little or no experience of embellishing textiles, or those who wish to develop their current skills and create with others in a comfortable environment. Participants will be learning in a relaxed atmosphere and have access to facilities that will enable them to create beautiful pieces with like-minded individuals. The course is flexible to enable students to produce work which will cover a wide range of different skills and a variety of textile and printmaking methods.

Learners will tackle a different skill or technique each week including: · hand embroidery · free motion (free machine) embroidery · applique and · printmaking heat transfer inks and digital sublimation heat transfer.

There are no formal requirements for this course apart from an enthusiasm to
Studying Fashion Business and Retail at Bridgwater and Taunton College was the best choice I could have made. The staff team are probably the most helpful and fun to learn with teachers I’ve ever had and have really shared their love for the subject and industry with me. Next year I am going onto the Art and Design Foundation Diploma to help build my portfolio whilst I continue to work on developing my own clothing brand.
