If you enjoy experimenting with mixed media techniques including embroidery, collage and montage, then this is a great opportunity to create a mixed media embroidery based on memories. You will be using layering techniques, with images and text, papers and fabrics, which will be fused together with wax. You will be able to embellish your work with embroidery, buttons, ribbons or lace and add this to your embroidered piece of memories.
The day will start with an introduction to my work looking at the techniques that I use to develop mixed media artwork for exhibitions and craft fairs. Followed by demonstrations and practical sessions where you will be shown how to develop your own techniques and processes. All abilities welcome.
For more information please see my website ('View website') link above.
