Summer School 2018: Process and Change

See, Feel and Observe – Class now full

NOTE:  Alice Fox’s and Dorothy Tucker’s courses are now fully booked and a waiting list has been started.

Working from a collection of personal colour observations, you will dye an individual palette of colour using a variety of fabric surfaces. This resource will then be used to research and investigate colour through layering and simple stitching, hand or machine.

The qualities of dyed transparent, translucent and opaque surfaces will be explored, disturbed and enhanced. Using various processes, we will create a rich collection of colourful nuggets, which could be a foundation for future work or enjoyed in their own right!

A course for those willing to explore and study the quality of dyed colour and stitched surfaces.


Ruth’s work is engaged with the investigation of colour using painting, dyeing and a variety of stitched techniques. Her working practice is centred around practical research, exploring different colour combinations and fabric surfaces, thus creating a rich resource for her work. Ruth is author of six books and has taught workshops both nationally and internationally.
