Amarjeet Nandhra

Throughout this course you learn how to play with the materials and enjoy the results. You will work on a series of small painted abstracted fabric collages created by making accidental marks to inform the construction.

Amarjeet will guide you through a series of exercises using fabric and paint and the techniques of layering, cutting and piecing. You will experiment with colour, patterns and texture. Throughout the course you are exploring the possibilities of colour combinations, magical marks and composition.

In the final part of the process you will layer the surfaces with additional marks using asemic writing, drawn marks and expressive hand stitch.

Leave your inhibitions at home and join us for a two week course; you’ll not regret learning to create abstracted stitched collages with Amarjeet.

No matter your level of experience, everyone is welcome to join us.
