About the Course
Using various fabrics, acrylic paints and machine stitch you will create a contemporary free machine embroidered hanging for your wall. During the 2 day course you will explore a range of techniques to enable you to produce a finished piece that is personal and will reflect your own ideas.
Day 1 - You will have a fun day experimenting with the possibilities of mixing media buy painting and printing on your fabrics ready to stitch together in your desired composition.
Day 2 - Priscilla will guide you through the process of creating an image from your painted and printed fabrics - drawing on her vast experience of combining colour, shape and texture. She will then demonstrate the joy of drawing with stitch to embellish your creations and share tips on how machine embroidery can add new surface qualities to your textile art!
This is fantastic workshop for anyone who would like to explore a mixed media approach to stitched textiles and develop new ways of working. Some sewing experience would be an advantage but not necessary. Please bring your sewing machine with a free embroidery facility, plus a collection of fabrics you wish to work with.
"I love supporting others on their creative journey - there is so much enjoyment to be found in seeing someones delight at trying a new technique or process and encouraging them to make it their own".
