Textile art is the creation of textiles or creating with textiles. Textile artists use various techniques to create works of art using threads and fibres sometimes in combination with paints or dyes.

Starting on 14th May
Week 1: The landscape. Exploring how many artists and designers have been inspired by aspects of the landscape such as light, colour, form, texture and pattern and then creating our own example.
