Drawing with Stitch

  • The Artworks Shaw Lodge, Shaw Lane Halifax, HX3 9ET United Kingdom (map)

Suitable for ages 14 +


This workshop will explore the relationship between drawing and stitch through a range of processes. We will begin with a series of experimental drawing activities in order to explore the work of Quentin Blake and highlight details which we find interesting. We will then use a range of processes to build up our own textile illustration from our drawings, including textile collage, free machine embroidery and hand stitch.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore the work of Quentin Blake in depth whilst exploring mixed-media illustration methods and learning new textile illustration techniques.

Many thanks to Great Art for supporting us with materials and resources for all Quentin Blake workshops.
