Illustrated Textiles: Design, Print and Sew a Cushion (Online Course)

Sun, 01/11/2020 - Thu, 01/07/2021

In this online Skillshare class you will learn how to design, print and sew your own illustrated cushion cover. You can get two months of free access to this course and all other Skillshare classes through this link:

You will see your own artwork come to life on fabric, then create a cushion for your own home or as a new strand of your creative practice. 

If you are an illustrator, artist or creative soul who would love to explore textiles as a creative output then this class is for you.

Prior basic machine sewing experience is desirable but not essential, you can still send the fabric to print then hand sew it!  

This class is your opportunity to see your artwork on fabric. I will take you through the steps to research your interior space, make a moodboard for your design; draw, collage and play with different drawing techniques; prepare your digital artwork for printing on textiles; and finally sew and make your own cushion.

These skills will complement other areas of your creative practice, and open new avenues for you to explore. Once you have started digitally printing fabric, there’s no end to what you could make - clothes, bedding, wall hangings and so much more! 

Why you should join!

I am a participatory artist and illustrator based in Bristol with ten years experience facilitating workshops with communities of diverse ages and backgrounds. I love encouraging others to discover new ways to be creative and to broaden their own perspective of their creative practice. If you would like to get inspired, learn new ways to explore illustration and discover the world of illustrated textiles then come and get involved! 

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in the class!
