This is a structured workshop designed to encourage the textile artist to think outside the box and work with material combinations they may not have previously considered. Participants will create a highly ornate panel with the use of water soluble fabrics combined with appliquéd space dyed velvets and decorative cords. As we just have a day we will be using the hot plate to dry out your creations so they then could be beaded at home if you wish.
This workshop is suitable for those with experience in free machine embroidery. All materials are provided but participant’s need to bring:
Sewing machine complete with extension table
Free machine embroidery foot ( a necessity)
Normal presser foot Spare bobbins.
If you have one please bring along your fine nib soldering tool (Margaret Beal )
