One of our favourite textile artists, Mandy Pattullo, will be letting makers in on her process at Chateau Dumas this summer. Mandy is already widely known for her repurposing of old textiles, transforming scraps into stunning wearable ensembles. On top of this, she has also made her mark on a wonderfully illustrative genre of textile art, using local wildlife as inspiration to create delicately stitched artworks full of character. Illustrating all kinds of animals from deer to fox, hare, red squirrels, owls and butterflies, Mandy’s fabric portraits are filled with affection and whimsy. After training as a surface pattern and textile designer, she is now based in rural Northumberland where she hand sews most of her creations combining piecing and applique with stitch while collaging with found objects and small, precious bits of embroidery. Her influences range from antique patchwork and appliqued quilts, to Louise Bougeois, Rauschenberg and even the art of junk shopping. b2016a0f2b3e6bac72e6a8ecef77c5d8 Mandy returns to Chateau Dumas this summer with a course based on the ideas in her book Textile Collage. In this publication she takes a fresh look ways to use scraps and oddments of fabrics to create something unique and personal, perfect for those who have hoarded bits of fabric, trim and memory-filled domestic textiles over the years. During her course at Chateau Dumas, participants will have the opportunity to work in a number of different styles to produce stitched animal portraits and still lives inspired by collage and dyed textiles, exploring the idea of slow stitching. 7536979_orig 5-12 August, course and board from €1,935 To book your place visit
