About Studio Galli Productions

Museum Banner

Galli Creative produces educational workshops focused on textile, stitch, surface design and encaustic arts.  Our teaching format is self-guided featuring some of the leading art instructors in the world.  Most of our instructors are published with DVDs and books in print, and many have achieved the highest recognition in their field.  

In addition to producing educational workshops, Galli Creative produces archival educational video for leading museums.  Our documentary film work has taken us from Southeast Asia to Latin America to Europe with an emphasis on fashion, creativity, sustainability and restorative methods.

Galli Creative is the workshop brand of Studio Galli Productions, a producer of educational DVDs and Books on textile and encaustic art for nearly 20 years. Have a look below at some of the work we have done as well as our catalog of educational films.

2021: Distribution Agreement with Immediate Live (London, England)

Many courses from Galli Creative are now available from Immediate Live — the largest specialist events company in the UK with events ranging from BBC Cycling World to the London Christmas Fair and the Festival of Quilts. By partnering with Immediate Media, Galli Creative is able to reach a much wider audience and develop new programming related to fabric arts, surface design, sewing, stitch, and more.

Artist Portraits

In addition to the catalog of films shown below, Studio Galli has produced artist portraits for several leading artists. One of the films is “The Responsive Guitar” which we produced for Ervin Somogyi celebrating his 40+ years as the recognized world leader in steel string guitar making.  His clients include several Grammy winning artists, SONY Music, and some of the top folk and acoustic recording artists today.

Conference/Event Coverage

Studio Galli has managed event and conference coverage of leading craft associations, events and festivals in North America and the United Kingdom. For several years we were the show videographer for the Surface Design Association, the World Shibori Network (Japan), Slow Fiber Studios (France), the Embroiderers’ Guild (UK), the London, Dublin and Harrogate Knitting & Stitching Shows and the Birmingham Festival of Quilts for Creative Exhibitions, Ltd., London (now Immediate Live). 

Museum/Gallery

Our journey has taken us from Europe to Asia to South America as we have captured some of the finest artists exploring textiles and craft.  Today our project clients include some of the finest art museums and galleries in the world such as the San Francisco Asian Art Museum who sponsored the creation of our film, Batik of Java: A Visual Journey as well as numerous indigenous craft films in Southeast Asia. 

One of our favorites is Balinese Double Ikat where we journeyed to the Island of Bali, Indonesia and into the rainforests surrounding Ubud in order to capture centuries old weaving traditions, natural dyeing, customs and community rituals. 

Educational Workshops / DVDs

Since 2007 Studio Galli Productions has been producing high quality textile and surface design related DVDs, videos and eBooks for beginning to advanced artists.   From our very first DVD on silk painting to the current advanced dye and surface design workshops we have always endeavored to bring the viewer into the creative studio with the artist – along their side.  The film “Color By Accident” was produced for Ann Johnston who is a leading author of fabric dyeing books available from dealers worldwide.

Content Hosting, Management & Streaming Solutions

In addition to video production, Galli Creative provides content hosting, management and streaming solutions for clients in North America and the United Kingdom.  We have our own dedicated cloud servers to ensure complete control of the content, high level security, and full redundant backups of all content.  Please contact us for information about our hosting, management and streaming solutions available at this time.
