In this exciting day, learn the art of Kirigami – Japanese paper cutting - and apply it to textiles. You will learn how to create freezer paper stencils, and how to foil fabric to create your own exciting abstract designs in bold colour combinations. We will use fabric paints and create one or two panels 40cm square – large enough to make two stunning cushions or tote bags.
Fabric, fabric paints, freezer paper, foil, fusible web and irons will be provided.
What to bring:
Sharp fine cutting blade (craft knife) to cut stencils, cutting mat, pencil
Tray/old plate to put fabric paint on. Small sponges for dabbing paint
A couple of brushes (might be needed for mixing colours etc)
Old newspaper to protect surfaces
