Painted Background for Stitch with Helen Hallows

Tell a friend:

17th February 2018 - 10am - 4pm

Venue: Sock Gallery

Using florals as our inspiration, we will draw with shape and colour to abstract from nature. Using acrylic paints we will create abstract, painterly backgrounds on cloth before stitching into the background to ‘draw’ in the details.

Age 16+

Free tea and coffee throughout the day.

Helen Hallows studied Woven Textiles at Loughborough College of Art & Design after completing a Foundation Course at St. Alban’s College of Art. Following graduation she travelled around India and had her mind blown with the potential of life and the wonder of pattern and colour. For five years she lived and worked in London as a textile designer creating stationery and home ware designs for international clients. Life is now in the Midlands where she creates mixed media art work in her garden studio.
