Summer School Tutors
Alice and Dorothy will each tutor exciting workshops for our students.
They are both members of the Textile Study Group and are well known textile artists in their own right and experienced in leading fantastic workshops.
See their profiles below.
Alice’s process-led practice is based on personal engagement with landscape and has sustainability at its heart.
Working with natural fibres and gathered materials she employs natural dye techniques, print, stitch and weave in different combinations to create surfaces and structures that record a sense of place.
Alice is a member of the Textile Study Group and the Society of Designer Craftsmen. She exhibits and teaches nationally and internationally and is author of Natural Processes in Textile Art (Batsford, 2015).
Alice works from her studio in Saltaire, West Yorkshire.
She has been a TSG member for four years and in 2014 was invited to teach at the Association of New Zealand Embroiderers’ Guild Biennial Conference in New Plymouth.
Dorothy Tucker works from her home in South West London. She likes to be out-of-doors working directly from what she sees and feels. Some of these drawings and paintings lead into her contemporary textile pieces.
Born in India, Dorothy’s choice to stitch by hand is informed by her research into kantha, a form of embroidered quilt from Bangladesh which features in her own work and the courses she tutors in the U.K and abroad.
She exhibits with PRISM and the Textile Study Group. Her work was included in DIS/rupt, a curated Textile Study Group exhibition which opened at the Stroud International Textile Festival in May 2017..
