Workshops: sharing my techniques with you
Whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned crafter, my workshops are a chance for you to put aside the stresses of daily life, develop new skills and immerse yourself in the creative process, with exciting results. Choose from the selection of online and face-to-face courses below, and sign up to my newsletter if you’d like to hear about future dates.
What can I learn?
The workshops are all based on the techniques I use, and cover one or more of the following areas:
Textile painting – applying textile paint directly onto raw, natural fabrics, such as calico, linen or cotton, you’ll play with colour as you build up your atmospheric landscape or seascape.
Monoprinting – this is where you apply paint to an object and use it to create one unique imprint. My workshops use natural objects such as grasses, seed heads and feathers, as well as objects from around the home.
Free motion embroidery – I’ll show you how to set up the darning embroidery foot on a sewing machine then give you tips and guidance as you have fun experimenting with flowing lines, stitches and colour.
I begin these workshops by demonstrating the techniques and am then on hand to guide you and answer questions as you try them out. I’ll let you know in advance which materials you’ll need. You can book a one-to-one course or join a group session, all via Zoom – the easy-to-use video conferencing app.
If there is a particular area you would like to focus on that isn’t listed below, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do my best to help.
