About your workshop
A creative day with textile artist Emily Notman, embrace a range of mixed media methods to create a whimsical wall hanging. On the day Emily will take you through manipulating and dyeing your own fabrics, how to construct your panel then finish beautifully with contemporary delicate hand stitch.
Your day will be spent creating a wall hanging, mixing drawing methods such as inks, bleach and printing with found objects. Once you have a collection of pieces Emily will share her methods of constructing these pieces into hangings using stitch, wrapping, trapping and binding. Finish off with machine sewing, hand stitch and tactile embellishments for decoration.
“I create bespoke textile instillations mixing media and building up tactile delicate surfaces. I work and rework my pieces with paint, dyes, bleach and ink, burning and layering until finishing it with hand stitch. I find beauty in flaky walls, overgrown buildings and encrusted surfaces; this is something I recreate in my work. My pieces evolve and grow with time, incorporate history with layering and sometimes the tiniest mark made or stitch changes a piece dramatically it’s this detail that excites me.
I studied at Leeds College of Art and Design between 2006 and 2008, which resulted in a passion for Photography, Textiles and Fashion. I then attended the University of Cumbria, graduating in 2011, with a 1st Class BA Honours Degree in Contemporary Applied Arts – specialising in Ceramics, Embroidery and Printed Textiles.”
