Introduction to Embroidery and Mixed Media Textiles is an evening class taught once a week at Edinburgh College’s Granton campus. The course is designed for those interested in; embroidery, starting a new hobby or pursuing a new career. You will need little to no embroidery and mixed media textiles experience as this course will start with the very basics.
During this course you will explore a variety of stitch and fabric embellishments to create a body of samples and textile-based artwork. Work created on these courses can support a portfolio of work for future course applications to specialist Art and Design courses, supporting school leavers or a career change. You will work in Edinburgh College school of art textile studios where you will be trained in; both hand and machine embroidery; heat transfer printing; basic weave and knit techniques. Here you will use a range of organic and synthetic paper, plastic, yarns and cloth to create final textile artworks.
The majority of our courses will be delivered online only for the beginning of 2021. A limited number of courses will have classes on campus. You will be contacted by your lecturer if your course will include any face-to-face classes on campus.
