Print and Make for Three Days with Alison Hulme

£65.00 per day or £150.00 for the three days.

Print and Make with Alison Hulme will once again be at Eau Brink Studio.

This exciting three day workshop will ensure that you take home with you a huge amount of printed fabric.

Also you can finish a cushion, a apron, dress, a bag  or a canvas on the third day.

Print and MakeAlison is famous for her pinnies and can be found at most of the big fairs such as Knitting and Stitching shows.

If you think you cannot print onto fabric using Acrylic paint think again. 

You can turn up without any experience and go home with your head buzzing with ideas.

Alison will help you co-ordinate your colours and designs.

You get to use her large collection of Thermofax screens to create your fabrics.

During our time with Alison we will also cover tray dyeing, breakdown printing and painted backgrounds.

So much to learn and so little time to learn it in.

If you would like to attend for just one day then do let Anita know and we will see what we can do for you. If we have space we will do our best to help.

It is a great thee days of fun and laughter.

Of course I will be baking so there will be scrummy cake as well as fruit and lots of hot drinks.

What’s not to like?

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

In 2021 we hope our exhibited work can be seen in King’s Lynn at open studios, Norwich at the Forum, Brancaster Village Hall and the NEC in March and we are looking at the possibility of somewhere else in Norfolk nearer the end of the year.  For further information check out the Facebook page at regular intervals, in case of changes due to Covid.

Progression in Textiles is a group of eight and if you wish to join us please get in touch on admin@eaubrinkstudio.co.uk

It Is Monday Again

I have no idea where the days and weeks are going. It is Monday again and I am working hard to get new items ready for Wymondham next week, put new workshops on the systems once I have sorted out the details with the tutors or for myself. And on top of that keep the shop fully stocked. Busy Bee.

So lets start with looking at what I have been working on shall we?

Firstly a series of new workshops that are using pre-cut fabrics which can be stitched together as patchwork and quilting. This new series is starting on Thursday 4th November at 10am till 2pm.

The first one is just your basic cushion. It won’t take too long and you get to choose your fabrics over tea and cake of course. This cushion is made using a 10 inch pre-cut square of Lewis and Irene fabrics with a nice pre-cut boarder that is 2.5 inches wide. Just right for a beginner.

All machine stitched and even top stitched to finish it off and close it after stuffing .

The second is moving it on a little bit to make a cathedral window cushion on the sewing machine again. This series will run for 4 weeks ending on 25th November. At the end of the series you will be able to use the cushion blocks for larger projects such as quilts for you home or to give a gifts.

I have also been working on items for West Norfolk Artists next exhibition. I am currently working on a Cockerel and hope to get it finished and framed in time for the submission at the end of November.

The other thing I am working on is a kit for embroidering. I have dyed the threads and printed the fabric just sewing one so you can see what to expect. Nearly finished it and will post the finished picture on social media.

I have to say I am loving how the threads have turned out and the way the colours look when stitched.

Progression in Textiles

We had a great time as part of Open Studios. Enjoying lots of visitors who stayed and chatted to us about our work and what we will be up to in the coming year. We now do not have any exhibitions until March where we will be at the NEC so we have lots to get on with. Of course we will keep everyone posted on our progress through our social media pages such as Facebook and Instagram. Just look for  Progression in Textiles and if you like what you see please do like our pages.

Experimental Wednesday

So this week we have Experimental Wednesday where we will be playing with Gum Arabic transfers. I have to say I am not that good at this process for some reason everyone else gets better results than me. But that’s what we will be revisiting again. so if you fancy joining in just pop over to the events page and book in or email Anita on admin@eaubrinkstudio.co.uk .

We have everything you need and plenty of time to practice too.

 

If you want to see the new cushions you can make just go to the Long Sutton Emporium and into my shop which is called EBS Retail and you can see them before they go off to Wymondham on Monday if they have not sold.

There also may be a quilling workshop coming up too. But still working out the details with the tutor. so watch this space.

Just one more thing. We have managed to hatch out one duckling and Luna has decided it is hers to protect so poor Lucy gets growled at, everytime she looks in its direction. We have had to put it in a cage instead of a box because we are not sure if it managed to escape or if Luna took it out of the box.

Take care everyone

Anita
