Rosina is an artist based in South East England, specialising in textiles and mixed media sculpture. After studying City and Guilds Embroidery and the Higher Education Diploma in Stitched Textiles, she gained a First Class Hons degree in Fine Art.
Her main interests include embroidery, knitting, felting, dying, screen printing and soft sculpture. Many of her pieces feature unconventional materials (knitted twine, wire and paper yarn), coated with wax and latex. She enjoys experimenting with materials, and fusing traditional textiles with sculptural practices to create unexpected outcomes.
The classes aim to be laid-back, and welcome all abilities from beginners to those with prior experience. The workshops demonstrate the basics, and potential of simple techniques to create textile art and sculpture. Rosina enjoys sharing ideas, and has a wide range of samples to inspire and encourage students to follow their own interests, with ideas for making artwork after the class.
Her most recent artwork, a collection of Freudian inspired knitted sculptures, explores feminist issues and the boundary between craft and fine art. Rosina has exhibited across London and the UK, and recently took part in Platform 16 at Leyden Gallery and Nasty Women UK at Stour Space.
