Stamped Silk Bag Workshop £65

  • The morning will start with you using a variety of Indian wooden blocks to stamp fabric paint onto silk. 

    You will then use free motion embroidery to decorate your design. Having a pattern on the fabric can help to make FM embroidery easier. Using a wide variety of coloured threads you can make your decoration subtle or very bold. There are also beautiful metallic threads to use to make your design sparkle.

    A patterned, coloured fabric will be used to line your bag which is surprisingly simple to do. Ribbon or corded rouleau will be used to make the ties for your bag.

    This course is a great way to try stamping fabric and by doing some simple FM embroidery and simple sewing techniques create a very pretty, little bag.

    All techniques will be clearly demonstrated and there will be plenty of help on hand. There will be samples for you to inspire you.

    Suitable for people with a basic understanding of a sewing machine.
