Embroidered Silk Paper Workshop

New dates later in the year
  • The course is about making small pieces of silk paper and creating texture in the paper by trapping threads, silk tops and pieces of fabric. There is a huge range of different materials to experiment with.

    Some simple free machine embroidery is stitched onto the paper before embellishing with beads and sequins and turning it into a small picture which can be framed or mounted on card to make greetings cards.

    Samples will be shown and techniques clearly demonstrated allowing everyone to make their own personalised creations.

    You will learn how to make silk paper and see different ways in which it can be decorated. You will make 8-20 small pieces of paper or fewer larger pieces.
