Making textile jewellery is a brilliant way to explore the possibilities of water soluble fabric and machine embroidery. Suitable for both complete beginners and competent sewers this fun workshop is a wonderful excuse to root through the vintage fabric boxes, find the perfect print and turn it into something unique and wearable!
This workshop is really a creative play day where I open up my studio and its treasure trove of fabrics and machines for you to use! There is an extensive range of books for inspiration and tins full of beads and embellishments. We will explore techniques such as applique, patchwork and machine embroidery and work them together into “fabric recipes” that can be used for making projects or framed as Textile Art. Groups are small so if you are a complete beginner there will be plenty of help and guidance. I always try to ensure that everyone leaves with a finished piece, however you are welcome to commence a grand project while you are here!
This workshop will specifically concentrate on using water soluble fabric to create beautiful fabric structures using the sewing machine. You will learn how make these gorgeous bowls and have the chance to experiment with making lace edgings and weaves.
