This mixed media class can be described as scrap booking for the textile fanatic and will help you understand and be able to use all those weird and wonderful products that we all have but don’t use. Add them to your hand stitching skills and mix in some painting, shrinking, heating and soldering and you will be amazed at the exciting and interesting book you are going to create over the coming year
Each month you will make a fabric page for your book working from a postcard, picture, magazine, personal topic or random on the day thoughts of something that appeals to you. Your book can be themed or you can just embrace the technique shown that month and work a page of samples that are sympathetically collaged together to give an innovative interesting page that reflects your style. Every month a selected technique will be taught and demonstrated and you will be able to practice this and then use it to help you create your page. Your book will largely feature embroidery, applique, patchwork and mixed media styles and once completed will show a wide and varied understanding of all techniques used. This will be a book of wonderful collaged memories of translated techniques to pass on to the next generation. No experience required, learn as you go along.
The sessions are Monthly and can be attended as one off but to get the most out of the opportunity going to as many as possible will enhance your embroidery journal.
