This relaxed introductory course into stencil printing will teach you how to create beautiful botanical patterns on both fabric and paper, with the day’s main activity decorating a cushion cover.
Working with Melanie’s own stencil designs inspired by her love of gardens and the Dorset countryside, the workshop is perfect for both complete beginners and those who may have used stencils before.
Using her creative approach and novel system you will be guided through the process of building and layering up a design. She will share with you her knowledge, techniques and tips for successful printing onto fabric.
Finally, you will learn how to fix the decoration to ensure that the cushion cover is fully hand washable. By the end of the day you will have a beautifully decorated cushion plus the confidence to continue with this fun method of decoration on paper, fabric and even wood…the opportunities for projects are endless!
Should you require a 50 x 50cm cushion inner pad they can be purchased on the day for an additional £4.50.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

50ml pot of green fabric paint.
