Angie Hughes – Waterworld
All materials included
On this full day workshop you will look at the different types of soluble films available, how they work and understand their uses. Inspiration will be taken from British coastal flora; seaweed has a lot to offer when it comes to design and texture. You will learn about what you need to do to stitch on soluble films and fleeces, find out about useful machine embroidery techniques to make lovely textural backgrounds and putting it all together to make a seashore inspired embroidery.
Includes homemade lunch, and refreshments
