Galli Creative • Fine Arts & Crafts Courses for Artists

Galli Creative is the online learning portal for films and books produced by Studio Galli Productions.  For more than 15 years Studio Galli Productions has produced 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, Studio Galli 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.

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 (USA), the World Shibori Network (Japan), Slow Fiber Studios (France, Mexico), the Embroiderers’ Guild (UK), the London, Dublin and Harrogate Knitting & Stitching Shows (UK, Italy) and the Birmingham Festival of Quilts for Creative Exhibitions, Ltd., London (now Immediate Live). 


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 “Exploring Fiber Reactive Dyes” remains our most popular foundational workshop for working with synthetic dyes for natural fibers and silk.

Custom Design, Content Hosting, Server 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.  For several years, Galli Creative has designed and managed the streaming video and educational workshops booking solutions for Palmer/Pletsch, the leading designer of sewing patterns for Vogue Patterns, McCall’s and Butterick’s for more than 40 years.

Galli Creative is sponsored by Amazon Web Services Activate program which provides funding, resources and lightning fast data delivery for a wide range of services from video streaming to data download.  Please contact us for information about our hosting, management and streaming solutions available at this time.
