About Ellie Hipkin, curator of Flourish

Textile art saved my life. 

It’s how I coped with unthinkable loss, and how I draw on the calming power of nature. After a decade working in fashion, this expressive and tactile art form is now at the heart of what I do.

I sell my embroidered paintings, prints, cushions, scarves and notebooks around the world, and have the enormous joy of passing on my favourite skills and techniques as a teacher, and as curator of Flourish Textile Art Hub.

I have now attended two of Ellie's in person Workshops - a 1-day course on Monoprinting followed by a 3-day course on Textile Art and I can highly recommend them. Ellie is a fabulous teacher, so kind-spirited and encouraging to those attending her course and is someone who is happy to share her knowledge, skills and experience to be able to inspire and help others become more creative. I really enjoyed my time on the courses and I would love to join some of her new online courses and tutorials to be able to learn even more - looking forward to it Ellie!

Ellie introduced me to textile art. I’ve done three free motion embroidery courses with Ellie, who is an excellent teacher, she’s not only enthusiastic , but very knowledgeable. Each time I finish a course I’m buzzing with ideas.

I attended a three day textile art class led by Ellie Hipkin. I can honestly say that I had a fantastic time and came away with two pieces of work that I’m very pleased with. I had never done anything like this before, but Ellie’s instruction was clear and focused and she was always encouraging. She guided us through mark making, mono printing, paint washing and freehand motion embroidery. I would highly recommend her classes - a must for anyone wishing to develop their skills in this area.
