Techniques, approaches and how to make it happen.
Workshops are in Acomb, York – you will need your own machine- nothing fancy required, just staight stitch and preferably the function to drop the feed dogs is enough to get started.
I have Wednesday evening and Friday mornings set aside for teaching at home. Max class numbers are 5. These are not formally set classes but a vague outline of key areas is below. As numbers are low individual tuition and/or projects are possible so students can make progress at their own speed and follow their own interests. Email me for more info or booking, or check out my website.
Introduction – set up your machine, try out the basics, get started on a new adventure. Good for complete novices at this or those who have tried and cried.
Layers – building fabrics and other things into your stitching, creating surfaces and textures
Colour – doing more than just colouring in. Laying colours on top of each other, working with ‘grounds’, creating colour schemes to work with.
Making pictures – ways of getting from a found image to a stitchable design – quality cheating from creating outlines to building it.
I will do private workshop bookings for groups of friends or clubs at my venue or yours, and will travel to do demonstrations/talks. Please contact to enquire.
