4 May: Cushion Making with Freemotion Embroidery and Applique
Spend the day creating a cushion cover using embroidery and applique techniques. Just bring along some inspiration as a starting point for your project. This might involve a certain colour palette to match an interior scheme or it may be a piece of art or artist that inspires you. We will play with fabrics and textures to create your own stunning cushion cover. This workshop is suitable for those with experience and also for beginners as everyone will be working on their own projects at their own pace. Annie will guide you through the process of making a cushion cover and the various applique and embroidery techniques you may want to employ.
8 June: Creative Fabric Collage Pictures
During this workshop we will recreate fabric images from your favourite photo. This could be an animal or favourite pet or indeed a loved one or a landscape scene, the choice is yours! This course is also suitable for people who have previously been to one of Annie's classes as we will be working in a different way than usual.
6 July: Paint and Stitch Workshop
An experimental workshop for more advanced or adventurous textile enthusiasts. Come and enjoy a day out with Annie and play with fabrics and paint! You can choose to make a book cover, a storage pot or simply a little picture, whatever you like! We will play with manipulating and painting fabric, a variety of stitching techniques as well as using water soluble fabric. You may choose to stitch by hand rather than machine, the choice is yours.
Most materials are included and lots of complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits are provided throughout the day! Class groups are deliberately kept small so that everyone will get lots of help and attention. Haberdashery items will be available to purchase at the workshops, helping you to keep stitching when the classes have ended.
