Jane McKeating 'Stitch into Print' Masterclass Workshop
Hand stitch will be applied to existing printed cloth in this masterclass workshop with Jane McKeating.
Inspired by the embroidered bandanas in the Gawthorpe Textiles Collection and showing in the Significance exhibition, Jane will support participants to add to, distort, change and generally disrupt a print of your choosing. This can either be a piece of print you would like to bring to the class or Jane will supply some interesting printed cloths you can select to work over.
The maximum number of participants for this masterclass workshop is 12.
Refreshments / lunch are not included.
This masterclass workshop by Jane McKeating accompanies the Significance exhibition of new stitched work by staff and students of Manchester School of Art, together with the collection items they were inspired by.
About Jane McKeating
Jane McKeating is Associate Head of Design at Manchester School of Art. She is a member of the 62 Group of textile artists.
Jane's hand stitched and printed textiles are decorative and playful. The tactile surfaces depict universal themes in everyday life telling visual stories, often presented through sequences of images. Drawing is central to Jane's creative exploration and she moves between drawing and stitch to make work at a variety of scales. Her work has taken many forms for exhibition and commission, most recently returning to larger, wall based cloths.
Jane has jointly authored ‘Machine Stitch Perspectives’ (A and C Black 2010) and the companion volume ‘Hand Stitch Perspectives’ (Bloomsbury 2013) with Alice Kettle.

When & Where
Gawthorpe Textiles Collection
Gawthorpe Textiles Collection is an independent charity based at Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham, Lancashire. Originally called the Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth Collections, the charity was created after the death of our founder, Miss Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth (1886- 1967) to care for the collection of textiles she had amassed and to make it accessible through learning programmes and curated collection displays in the Hall itself.
We work in partnership with Lancashire County Council and the National Trust, who together manage the Hall and its grounds.
