Exploring the Natural World with Catherine Nicholls

October 5, 2015 - October 9, 2015
Offered by Sorrento Centre
Sorrento BC

MONDAY, October 5 – FRIDAY, October 9, 2015


Using the natural world as our source of inspiration we will experiment on fabric to re-create and interpret nature’s wide range of textures and colours.

We will explore the use of ink, paint, dye painting and discharge in a variety of techniques creating samples and generating ideas.

Students will then be guided through the process of developing their own original composition, pattern and fibre art masterpiece.

CATHERINE NICHOLLS is a painter, writer, teacher and quilt maker. Her work is developed through drawing, painting and mixed media in sketchbooks and when working with textile involves discharge, dyeing, drawing, painting and printing- along with more traditional techniques. The textile pieces are then densely quilted either by hand or machine and often both.

Catherine is a qualified City and Guilds tutor at Diploma level in Patchwork and Quilting and Creative Sketchbooks. Her textile work travels internationally and she is a published author. She is thrilled to endorse Mettler threads.
