Jubilee Discount at Gallery Textiles

Filed under: Evolon, Lutradur, MIxed Media, Zeelon — Wendy @ 10:22 am

I was feeling sorry for everyone yesterday who were valiantly trying to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and retain some shreds of dignity in the pouring rain. So what better than turn to your favourite artforms or past times and crack on regardless.

You will need the discount code here

Flying Visits- Gallery Textiles is On The Road

Filed under: Evolon, Lutradur, Shows, workshops, Zeelon — Wendy @ 2:56 pm

I have been busy sorting out my diary for late 2012 and 2013 and suddenly realised there is a gap. And as I can’t have me sitting around doing nothing (I wish) I thought I get out and about. So in short, if you are part of a group like Embroiderers Guild or Quilters Guild or anyone really – and you have a gap in your programme, I have put time aside this month and June and July to come out and bring lots of goodies and quite a few bargains. I can also do a few ‘on the fly’ demonstrations if there is something you’re not sure about. So for details click here and just let me know if you’re interested.

PS The pic is from my degree show toooooooooo many years ago.

Computing for Quilters **NEW**

Filed under: Digital Imaging for Fabric, workshops — Wendy @ 2:20 pm

Computing for Quilters **NEW**

A new course is in preparation just for Quilters!! The aim is to give quilters the skills to construct accurate shapes for patched quilts made up of squares, triangles, hexagons etc such as mosaic, greek keys, fishes and all of those great symmetrical shapes – or tessellations (I’m told!!) as featured here.

This course aims to develop software skills creating pattern outlines (vector images) using drawing software such as CorelDRAW or Adobe Illustrator. Vector images are outlines rather than images (bitmaps) and once constructed can be resized endlessly but retaining crisp detail.

Create basic shapes to accurate measurements.
Create multi – sided shapes using software tools.
Construct tessellations from basic shapes.
Design shapes and fill with colour, pattern or  ‘texture’.
Plan a full design for a patched design.

Courses are hoped to be held at Coombs Wood Business Centre (part of Halesowen College) in August 2012 (ish)and details will be broadly the same as the Photoshop for Textiles.
