The object is to produce your own original design under my guidance and finish at least one large piece of work. I am hoping that some of you will be happy to enter them in our Summer Exhibition (Not obligatory).

You can choose one of the following subjects as a theme for your piece: Allotments, Beside the Seaside, Natural environment

Session 1. We will initially be working from sketchbooks, drawing out ideas and discussing composition, colour and scale. We will then continue the design process in collage and paint.

Session 2. Working on backgrounds, image transfer and deciding on fabrics and techniques.

Session 3. Stitching and embellishing.

Session 4. Stitching and embellishing.

Session 5. Finishing off and stretching to board.
