We have had a last minute cancelation for this residential workshop with Susie Gillespie, 3-7 July... Snap it up here bit.ly/2tWVo0W
Residential 5 Day Creative Textile Course, Field To Fabric
3rd-7th July, 10-4pm each day.
Susie’s workshop and studio are set in the orchards of a 15th Century cider farm in South Devon. Based here she will show you how to process and spin flax grown in her orchard to make a hank of linen. Susie will also show you how to colour your linen using natural dyes.
Susie plants the flax seed (also called linseed) in spring so it is ready to harvest around August. Susie will talk you through the process of rippling, retting and drying and you will be supplied with the flax stems from previous summers for you to start the next stages of processing the flax into linen yarn.
Firstly you will put the stems through a giant wooden crimp called a breaker to reveal the flax fibres. The remaining bits of hard pith that are left on the fibres are then removed with a wooden knife called a scutch.
To prepare the fibres for spinning, you will comb them through fine metal tines (prongs) called a hackle and they will begin to resemble the ponytail of a flaxen haired maiden.
The pony tail is then spread out on a table and wound onto a distaff. Susie will then show you how to tease the fibre off the distaff and onto the spinning wheel to produce the linen yarn.
Once you have a hank of your own linen yarn you can colour it using natural dyes and then move on to the weaving studio, where there are four large shaft floor looms, and begin the process of weaving the linen into cloth to produce your own cushion cover or artwork.
Susie will show you basic weaving techniques as well as her more unusual ideas in weaving. You can weave different textures and experiment with wrappings, twill, looping, slits and tapestry inlay. You can also experiment with gesso, paint and earth pigments and (if you are making an art piece) distress, fray, stain, unravel, darn, stitch, cut and sew fragments together.
Suitable for complete beginners and experienced spinners and weavers, you will come away with your own linen cushion cover or piece of artwork designed and created by you.
Price includes five days tuition, all materials, accommodation in the Farm House and Barn House, breakfast, lunch, dinner. ... See MoreSee Less

Ever wondered why we think of blue for boys or pink for girls, or why bows and floral designs are absent from boys’ clothing?

Interested in moving our world towards positive social change? Join the group I started as a response to the Trump administration: Common Ground Creatives in Action. We have had great discussions and sharing there and I'm working on the website for it. The goal is to create change through nonviolence and creative actions that turn down the hate.
We stand against this Administration but recognize that it is a reflection of the deep unhappiness and frustration that people feel on all sides. If we move away from blaming parties and start focusing on issues, tackling one problem at a time, we can use our common interests and gifts to create positive change. Let's make a difference!Calling all creatives interested in social change through nonviolence! Common Ground Creatives is a response to the Trump agenda: we are against it.
But, we believe that most of us have more in common than we think. Hate will not solve our problems and we need to find solutions that will allow all life on our planet to thrive. Common Ground Creatives documents positive actions that helps us live in harmony, challenge destructive behaviors and encourage dialog. We want to apply these actions to our own communities, wherever we live.
Join our group to brainstorm and find support:
Our website is coming soon and will have a shop for artists creating positive protest and resistance art. Trump is not the problem. He is just a manifestation of the deep discontent and social alienation we find in our society. Let's do some healing and make some changes!

Ingrid – Beautiful
Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.
She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.
This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see. ... See MoreSee Less
