Make a small landscape in a day inspired by blossom trees. Images will be provided. We will collage together a fabric background, add tree trunks, then use a confetti technique, cutting tiny pieces with rotary cutters, and sprinkling these onto “mistyfuse”. Tulle is added before ironing and stitching. The composition can then be finished with hand or machine sewing as preferred. We will make a design approximately 35cm long by 35cm high max.
