All materials included

Day 1 Indian Garden – This workshop is inspired by a trip Angie recently made to Jaipur and a beautiful garden where she sat among the trees as peacocks passed by every now and then. This workshop is derived from her popular ‘Trees Leaves’ and incorporates block print, stencilling, foiling, hand and machine embroidery. Learn about how to embroider tree shapes using them as texture for printing and finish off by layering up all the printing and stitching into a lovely little piece to frame up. Some experience with free machine embroidery would be helpful.

Day 2 Woodland Textures – On this new workshop designed by Angie, learn ways to recreate tree bark and lichens using mixed media and stitch. Get to grips with Xpandaprint and Tyvek modern materials for making heavy texture. In between layers adding machine or hand embroidery to enhance the surface with flashes of colour.

 

Day 3 Twinkly Velvet Needlecases  In this workshop you will learn a few useful techniques for decorating velvet, simple machine embroidery and making up into a cute Needlecase. The properties of velvet are quite astonishing. Explore the effects achieved with dyes, inks and bleaching back in addition to transfoils glitters and lumiere paint. Very easy and fun; a great way to wind down on your final day.

Includes homemade lunch, and refreshments
