** NEW! Monthly Saturday Afternoon Textiles Club! **
This is a brand new monthly saturdayworkshop for children aged 8 yrs+. We will be using the sewing machine as well as doing some hand sewing. Below is an outline of this term’s project, which is a 3 workshop project.
Saturday 13 January – Workshop 1
We will be working on our initial designs and thinking about what our inspirations might be, and what areas we would like to research. We will be printing onto fabric, this can be used for the background of your cushion or for pieces of your design that you sew on. This can be abstract or illustrative.
3 February – Workshop 2
We will make our fabric test bits and mount them onto our a mood board, working out what we would like to include in our final design. Each sample board must include embroidery, printed fabric, appliqué and some 3D pieces that could protrude from the cushion. Following experimentation with all of these, you can decide which techniques you want to choose for your cushion cover. There is a strong chance they will all have piping around the edge too!
10 March – Workshop 3
With a detailed design and planned techniques in place, we will make our personalised cushion cover.
