Painterly embellishments with your sewing machine... with Dionne Swift

Discover new ways to create surfaces and marks on fabric with an embellisher in combination with free machine embroidery. This workshop explores a new vocabulary of mark making, whilst supporting you to create embellished & stitched cloth which can be used as a wall piece, part of a quilt/patchwork or any other project – the choice is yours!

You learn to draw and paint with your machines.

Inspired by a collection of C20th painters you will analyse and translate their painterly qualities into fabrics. This process can be the foundation of future developments and is an excellent format for establishing new directions in your creative work. It’s fast, fun and addictive.

By the end of the day you will have discovered a collection of techniques to help you gain the most from an embellisher and you will be able to draw with your sewing machine.

There will be a series of samples & workshop notes for you to continually refer to which will support your on-going textile development, plus a larger finished piece to be admired by friends & family.
