Shabby Chic Stitched Collage

New dates later in the year
  • Come and stitch pieces of leather, velvet, silk, ribbon etc to a piece of calico and then smother it in white emulsion paint!  It isn't as horrific as it sounds. The textures of the piece look quite different once painted.

    The piece is dried and then free-machine embroidered. It can be further embellished with beads, buttons and hand stitching. Colour can be introduced by stamping designs on the piece or by using coloured thread.

    This is a great way to use up various pieces of fabric that may have an interesting texture but be in a wrong colour. 

    Samples will be shown and techniques clearly demonstrated allowing everyone to make their own personalised creations. Plenty of different fabrics will be available to use.

    You will take home a unique piece of textile art.
