Experimental Wednesday at Eau Brink Studio is a fabulous day where you can play around with your stitching to create new art works.

Anita is on hand to help you on your way with what ever medium you wish to use.

You may want to play with colour or use different stitches for your art. Maybe a combination of traditional and modern stitching, Paper and fabric or how about dyeing and painting before you stitch into your work?

The aim of the day is to play, you can push a technique and see where your work takes you to creating new experiences.

If you prefer to have an end result in mind that’s okay as well as just seeing where the experience takes you.

Experimental Wednesday is a day of exploration, sharing ideas and pushing boundaries. A day of innovation and new experiences.

How will you learn?

Sampling is a great way to learn a technique and see how far you can push it. It is also a way to experiment. Anita has a favourite answer to most questions that start with “I wonder” or “what will happen”. The answer is simple, try it and see what you get. This helps individuals to explore without fear of failure.

Each Experimental Wednesday will include a structured teaching workshop for those who wish to participate. We will be exploring a different stitch each month and seeing how you can push the boundaries and see where it takes you. This will mean using different threads, and fabrics, colour and texture. Heat and resist.  Let your imagination take hold and see what happens.

Whats included.

Materials are not included , However, if you wish to have a go at something new just let Anita know in advance and she will help you with a materials list or let you know if it is something already in stock for you to use. Refreshments are included along with some materials.

Also if you have any kits you have not tried or did try but were unable to get satisfactory results bring them along and Anita will help you with them. Do discuss your needs before booking so that Anita can help you decide what you may want to do.

Sewing Machine Confidence

Sewing Machine Confidence will show you that your machine can do so much more? Many of us know who to use our sewing machines tend to use them for straight sewing.

Even the old mechanical machines can do far more than expected. On the 4th Saturday of each month Anita will show you a new skill on your sewing machine.

This is not a dressmaking course. But you will learn the skills to make items using a pattern once confident.

During Sewing machine Confidence You will build a book of samples and add your own notes with the help of Anita to ensure you are able to dip into the sampler book at any time and still be able to complete the task at hand. Samples will include all stitches your machine is able to do.  Each stitch can be shortened, elongated and widened. You can also use the stitches for free motion embroidery too.

In the morning Anita will demonstrate a new technique for you to practice and in the afternoon you can use this technique to make a small object.

Every Month will be a different technique so you can dip in and out when you fancy it.

Each workshop will have one or more learners at different stages of their development. This makes learning more interesting for everyone.

At the beginning of each workshop You will be asked to ensure your machine is clean and lint free. Also if you have changed the needle. Once this is completed the machine is ready for use. This stage of learning is a vital part of Sewing Machine Confidence.

All Sewing Machines have to be PAT tested. If your machine needs to be tested it can be booked in on your first workshop with the studio. For  more information on this contact Anita on [email protected]

Progression in Textiles is a group of like minded people working to improve their practice over the year, Meeting at Eau Brink Studio.

Bringing our work to the public through a series of events to show how we have  moved our practice on from basic beginnings to finished pieces.

As a group of individuals we are all working on our own skill set and intend to push the boundaries to explore a technique or subject to its persevered limits. Each year the members of the group plan to concentrate on a different technique  or subject to explore. As work progresses more than one technique will be involved adding already explored work into a new piece. Or part of previous works.

At our Textiles in Progress exhibitions you can see everything connected with the subject including the rejected pieces. Talking to the artists will give you an insight into their world. showing you how a piece was constructed including workbooks and samples.

Also whilst at some exhibitions you will be able to take part in a Make and Take. Make and Take is a great way to learn a new skill or to just have a go.

Our members want to help you learn and progress in your own practice of work so do ask questions.

Exhibitions

Our exhibited work can be seen in King’s Lynn, Norwich  and  Granchester Village Hall. Not to mention Wymondham at the end of the year. For further information check out the Facebook page at regular intervals.
