You're Not Alone
Under the expert guidance of internationally acclaimed Textile Artist, Author and Lecturer Cas Holmes, it’s easier than you might think.
Cas’ signature online course has been designed as an approach-based exploration that offers you the opportunity to delve deep into the thought process and methods Cas uses to create her famous textile landscapes.
Throughout the course Cas encourages you to take a risk as you develop ways to close the gap between materials, making and meaning.
You’ll learn achievable ways to create texture and depth in your fibre artwork using printing, layering and stitching techniques with paper and cloth.
All course materials, including self-paced beautifully filmed streaming videos and comprehensive resource guides, are within an easy to use member portal and yours to access and revisit anytime.
Making Connections – Mark, Layer & Stitch is a rich creative resource full of inspiration and ideas to last a lifetime. It’s a worldwide community for enrolled students to connect in a private online forum and share your textile adventures directly with Cas, ask questions, bounce ideas, and gain the skills and confidence needed to create your own mixed media masterpiece.
Weave At Your Own Pace
Cas Holmes is an internationally acclaimed Artist, Writer and Lecturer.
Her training in fine art painting and photography is evident throughout her well-known work with textiles and mixed media.
Cas’s work comes from the place between the what and the why of creation, between natural and urban environments, people and place and flows from neither a solid idea, technique or desired outcome but rather through a subliminal, intuitive and fluid process.
Often working on multiple pieces simultaneously responding to materials such as discarded cloth and papers, Cas’s work contains a history and offers the viewer an instant feeling of intimate friendliness as she magnifies the details of the often overlooked simplicities of daily life.
Cas’ work is often and perfectly described as Painting with Cloth and Stitch Sketching.
Cas is the author of several books for Batsford Publications including Stitch Stories (2015) and Textile Landscape: Painting with Cloth (2018).
Cas has received many awards for her work and recently completed a commission as part of Gypsy Maker 4 exhibition created by the Romani Cultural and Arts Company supported by the Welsh Arts Council.
Her work can be found in private and commercial collections all over the world from, London to New York to Australia.
As part of her practice Cas works on community collaborations developing a range of projects based on environmental themes from the natural and observed world. These collaborations offer her the insight to discover commonalities across these communities, which continue to inform her particular, take on the world.
