Bev Caleno – Making it Real, Close to Nature
All Materials Included
A great one day class concentrating on the natural environment and creating a piece of textile artwork that looks like the real thing.
You will be painting, burning, layering, ripping and stitching with an array of materials. We will learn how to reproduce, moss, lichen and fungus; a great day for the less disciplined machine stitcher.
Suitable for all abilities
Includes homemade lunch and refreshments
