What to expect

The Taking Textiles Further courses are bespoke experiences designed by Alysn for participants of Taking Textiles Further only in the UK. 2 x 2 day workshops can be taken separately or combine your achievements to create a final piece. You will have the choice of whether to use hand or machine stitching, or no stitch at all! The sessions are aimed at you if you have at least a little background in textiles or mixed media arts, but do not assume any prior knowledge or skills. We all share our ideas, skills, materials and support each other at all stages. Have fun, enjoy time together, learn lots and leave with inspiration to ‘Take Textiles Further’! WICKED WAYS WITH WIRE Workshop 1. Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th October 2023 Title: Draw, Print, Develop Be led through processes including drawing, making and using ink pens, making print blocks, printing on paper and fabric using both direct printing and resist printing methods often involving wire. Using these fabrics and papers you will move on to create 2d and 3d collages adding stitch and embellishments if you wish. I will be using inspiration from forms in nature, you are welcome to explore other themes using the same processes.

Cancellation Policy

Once you have confirmed your place by payment of full fees you have agreed to enter into a contract with Alysn Midgelow-Marsden where your fees are non-refundable nor interchangeable. If you begin this course then decide not to continue you will not receive a refund. If you are unable to attend a class due to illness, or for personal reasons, you will not be entitled to a refund for sessions missed. If the group drops below 5 participants, the course will be cancelled, and your fees will be refunded if you are not cancelling. In the event that Alysn Midgelow-Marsden is unable to deliver one or more of the sessions due to illness, every effort will be made to deliver a ‘make-up’ session. Should Aotearoa or Auckland be in a Covid-19 protection framework situation that prevents group meetings of this type and size, sessions of this course will be run on Zoom during that time at the published class times.
