Boost your skills and inspiration after the Flourish membership

As a creative, you can sometimes feel very much on your own. You might hit a creative wall and think, ‘I just don’t know how to move forward with this piece…’

Luckily for you, that’s what this group is for!

“Flourish is the best step I've taken on my creative journey in a long time. Ellie's support and encouragement is brilliant. I really value the sense of community and friendship with other like-minded creative people.”

Here’s how the Flourish Graduate Club works

The Graduate Club is open to anyone who has completed the full 12 month Flourish membership. Based on an easy monthly subscription of £20, which you can cancel anytime to provide full flexibility to our graduates

Your subscription will give you access to:

  • All the Flourish membership projects.
  • The library of artist interviews and invitations to join the new interviews.
  •  A growing library of ‘skills’ projects: These projects will focus on the different techniques you can add to your textile artwork. You can expect to see new lesson added to the library every 6-8 weeks.
  • Two drop-in calls a month – one during the day and one in the evening
  • The private Flourish Facebook community

What are the 'skill' lessons?

You’ll get access to a new ‘skills’ lesson every 6-8 weeks. In each lesson I will be focusing on new techniques and ideas we can add to our textile mixed media artwork. From painting and printing to different embroidery techniques. Focusing on one technique at a time will give you the chance to master each skill along side your own creative play. 

This is remote learning, but we’re truly connected...


Lively Zoom sessions

We’ll have 2 drop-in Zoom call every month where we chat about any textile art project you are working on.

Its also a great time ask for advice, share ideas and creative tips with the group.

If you can’t make the zoom call you watch the recording in the Graduate club area.


Join us on Facebook

Our private Facebook group is a safe space where you can…

  • Hang out with like-minded creatives
  • Share your work and talk all things textiles
  • Ask for advice if you’re stuck on a project
  • Share some new creative techniques you have been working on.

About Ellie Hipkin

Flourish was born out of my love for textile art and the importance it has in my life.

For me, Flourish has always been about connecting with textile art lovers from around the world and sharing the wellbeing benefits of regular creativity.

“Ellie is very warm and inspiring. You feel you are on this journey with her and she is encouraging you all the way..”

Everyone brings something different

Textile mixed media can be so varied… and that’s the beauty of it!

Maybe you incorporate hand stitching as well as machine embroidery?
Perhaps you focus on using distinct and unusual found objects?
Or maybe you’ve come up with a new technique?

This community is about developing your own style and skills after the Flourish membership. We’ll inspire each other and offer tips and tricks, as well as helpful feedback. It’s a safe space – there’s no judgement here!
