Creative Textiles and Thread

This is a new group of people who enjoy doing things with textiles and thread. This could be anything from the very practical to highly decorative work. The emphasis is on gaining new skills and combining them imaginatively. We will explore traditional and newer techniques, both academically and practically. We will do this by:

visiting exhibitions, museums and galleries;

running workshops to learn or improve our skills (using group members expertise and online or print resources); and

having design sessions - which could be anything from colour theory to planning individual or group projects.

The group meets on the 4th Wednesday monthly at 2 pm in members’ homes, mainly in Wimbledon/Merton Park area.
