Art Nouveau Embroidery

Course Description:

This course is available for very advanced students only, who have completed at least the two most recent courses of embroidery with Uisce.

The participants will choose one art piece form a suggested range of works by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh. If you wish, you can work on more than one!

The works by these Scottish Art Nouveau artists are a perfect challenge to practice a variety of stitches and techniques you have learnt over the past few semesters. The projects can be interpreted in many ways, with various linear and filling stitches, gold-work techniques, bead-work techniques etc. The students are encouraged to work on silk fabric, which is a more challenging choice, but suits the pieces beautifully. 

The pieces have their colour scheme, but you can choose your own colours to apply in your project.

The students will need to provide their own materials and tools for the course. The teacher will provide the patterns and support via email and WhatsApp through the entire course.

I am a weaver, embroiderer and fibre arts teacher from Poland, living in Ireland since 2004. My textile art has been exhibited in group exhibitions in Ireland, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania and Taiwan. I am a recipient of several awards in Ireland and abroad.

My main focus in my art practice is on minimal woven art and medieval styles, techniques and images in embroidery.

I have been teaching various fibre arts courses and workshops from 2013 in Co. Dublin, Dublin City, Co. Louth, Co. Wicklow and Co. Down. In 2018/2019 I was working for Creative Spark, Dundalk, providing embroidery workshops for community projects. Since 2016 I teach various workshops at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre in Naul. In 2020 I started teaching fibre arts courses at Malahide Community School.

I am an author of a large scale tapestry Women of Fingal (completed in March 2021) funded by Creative Ireland and commissioned by Fingal County Council.

I practice historical fencing with sabre, longsword and sword & buckler as a member of HEMA Ireland (the national Historical European Martial Arts federation).
