Friday 26th - Sunday 28th January
Holiday Inn, Coventry
A WEEKEND OF TEXTURE - I will be teaching lots of techniques to create texture with fabric, thread and fibre. We will use watersoluble fabric, shrink polyester. Over the weekend you can create a range of samples to inform future work, or work on a larger piece to make into a handbag, cushion or wallhanging.
If you would like to attend please get in touch and I will pass on the contact details. There are other workshops happening at the same time so this will be a wonderful weekend of inspiration and sewing. What could be better in the January lull.
