Jo Gallant, Textile Artist


studio textiles


From my studio near New Galloway, on the edge of Galloway Forest Park, I offer textile workshops based on my own practice and experience.

I can take groups of just four people at a time so everyone gets plenty of individual attention and the materials and techniques are straightforward to continue with yourself.

Teas, coffees and a light lunch are provided. 


Dyeing, Stencilling and Quilting: Woodland and Wildflowers.  This is a three day workshop in which you will put together a panel using a combination of techniques.  Suitable for beginners as well as people with more experience.  Bring your own machine if you can.  

Tuesday 20-Thursday 22 November 2018 10.00-4-00. 

£170 including materials.

also on Thursdays over three weeks in March 1, 8 and 15  2019 


Texture from Machine Embroidery  This is a slightly more advanced one day workshop covering the use of long stitches, loose bobbin, aquafilm, and fabric manipulation and distortion.  Bring your own machine if you can.  

Wednesday 28 November 10.00-4.00.  £60 including materials.


Please email me if you would like more information on any of these workshops.
