Fibre, Felt and Free Motion Stitch
Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th February 2018
10am - 4pm
Please contact Art Van Go for bookings
In this two day workshop we will spend day one playfully making felt, leave to dry overnight and then stitch into using the
free motion foot on your sewing machine. We will use a selection of different fibres, silk threads and material in the felting
process to create interesting textures to embellish with machine embroidery. Felt is a wonderful material to stitch into as it
responds organically to free motion stitching, creating beautiful movement, detail and texture. Create a range of sample
pieces and/or piece of work to display at home.
