Experimental Print & Stitch with Deborah Campbell

June 28 2024 @ 9:30 AM - June 30 2024 @ 4:30 PM


Textiles for Deborah Campbell have always been an important element of her artistic expression and how she interprets the coastal landscape.

Deborah’s fascination for the coast is rooted in her childhood holidays and memories of exploration. She has always been intrigued with what will be revealed round the next headland and the idea of continual change and renewal by the incoming tide.

The methods Deborah uses reflect her training in printed textiles. However, in a much less technical way, she likes the process now to be much more spontaneous and expressive, using quite simple printing techniques like Lino, Collagraph and Geli printing.

Deborah works onto organza and gauze to give her the option to layer fabrics and create depth of colour and pattern. These are then constructed using free motion machine embroidery as her drawing tool, combined with hand embroidery. The mark making through stitch is used to construct, enhance and compliment the print.

Experimental Print & Stitch

This workshop offers a place to experiment and explore different methods of printing to create your own unique fabrics which are collaged together creatively using machine and/or hand embroidery. Inspiration will come from the natural environment informing the creation of your prints using Lino, Collagraph and Geli Printing.

You will create depth in your work by layering your printed fabrics and discover how to mark make & draw using different methods of stitch to embellish and construct your textile. Deborah will also show you how to add a motif in the shape of a bird or plant using machine embroidery.

No experience needed – all welcome.
