Here is the result of  four print and embroidery workshops with ‘the knit and chat’ group at Splash Arts. The theme running through each of the sessions was WW2, women’s role during the war and influencing female fashion from the 30’s to the 50’s.

In the class we explored screen-printing, mono-printing, appliqué and hand-embroidery and participants created individual samples each week on our theme…it was great fun!

Fashion & Character Illustration classes

Posted on

Saturday is the last ‘Fashion & Character Illustration’ Class (8-11 year olds) at Rosetta Arts for this year – it has been an incredible ten weeks and the work created by the children so diverse.

I teach my students a process and see how they develop the concept into their own piece; this ten week project had to relate to a Fashion Drawing or a new character/super hero.

The images below were an experiment where the students painted a square piece of cotton with white gesso and then drew their characters onto the fabric using oil pastel and acrylic paints….since these photos have been taken I’ve taught them to sew and they’ve been using appliqué onto their Artworks.

We have now photographed all of their artworks from the ten week course and in the final lesson will heat transfer (using heat press) their best works onto tote bags – teaching them possible ideas for development and Surface decoration.

Here are some samples which I created using applique and embroidery, following a Nautical theme – aimed at young girls aged between 2 and 5.
