PROGRESSION in TEXTILES

 

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.

Progression in Textiles is a group of ten and at this time is full. If you wish to join us when a vacancy arises please get in touch on [email protected]

Eco Dying

A Eco Dyeing day with the West Norfolk Embroiderers Guild learning how to dye fabrics and paper using natural colours.

Eco dyeing is a form of natural dyeing where the colours from plant material are transferred to paper or fabric via steaming or boiling.

Each plant will have its own properties and depending on the freshness of the plant and the mordant used you can achieve different colours from one pant.

What you will be doing

To achieve different Eco Dyeing effects, you will be exploring using different plants, mordants and surfaces all of which will be explained to you. Some of these you will have met before and others will be new to you. You will be encouraged to fold, wrap and contain your pieces in different ways, after which they will be steamed or boiled for an extended period of time. If you have patience you will be able to wait for 24 or 48 hours before unwrapping which can give you stronger results. If, however you are like most of us the urge to peep will be impossible to resist.

Requirements

Please bring:

 

  • Natural fabric, at least six 35 c.m. squares of assorted silk, cotton and a 1 of wool if possible.
  • Handmade paper – this can be your own, or something like Khadi Indian Cotton Rag paper A4 size.
  • A ball of thin string.
  • Scissors
  • Large beads to identify your own samples.
  • Bits of copper piping or similar – about 4” length [optional]
  • Leaves from the garden and country side, blackberry, ornamental plum, eucalyptus, dogwood, walnut, apple, Stagshorn sumac, herbaceous geranium. Bring what you can.
  • Apron & gloves
  • Notebook & pen, camera
  • A bag to take damp samples home.

Biography

Sewing has always been a part of my life. At the grand old age of 16 I was given my first sewing machine. A very old singer that was then replaced it will a Janome. Now I predominately use a Pfaff but also have a lovely old Bernina to use too.

My sewing career started with a lovely lady called Christine Davey and eventually I started the City and Guilds. Then when I moved to Kent after the first year and finished it with Ruth Issett. It was Ruth, in her own way, gave me licence to use many colours, that up to this point I would not have thought of using before.

In October 2013 I returned to Norfolk to set up a studio where I wanted to teach mixed media textiles as well as encourage other tutors into the area.
