Alex Waylett – Contemporary Panel (2 day workshop)

Date: 11th February 2017 - 18th February 2017
Time: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Spaces: -1

Saturday 11th and Saturday 18th February


All Materials Included

Under Alex’s instruction you will cover a multitude of different techniques – from design transfer to preparing your fabric for paint and applique. Having chosen your design your first day will be spent outlining your motifs onto your background fabric – the second day you will begin to look at colour and appropriate metallic and opaque paints alongside preparing applique pieces of fabric, building up a highly textural and original piece. Fabrics such as metallic faux leathers, silks and velvets alongside commercially printed cottons will all have a place in your completed wall hanging. Please note from the requirements list below that it will be helpful to incorporate your own fabrics with Alex’s supply.
The panel will be designed within the two days and finished off at home at your leisure.
Ideal for those with machine embroidery experience.

Includes homemade lunch and refreshments both days
