We are so excited to bring Isabel Fletcher into the studio for a one off masterclass!
Isabel is here to inspire and challenge us to rethink our textile waste – we all have it so lets make it stunning!
Perfect for beginners – or those with excess textile waste looking for some solid inspiration!
What will I learn? During the workshop, we will explore how textile waste can be used as the starting point for textile design. Consider placement, shape, colour, and stitches combined to create beautifully intricate textiles.
These techniques should spark ideas of how waste can be incorporated into everyday…
Notes on fabrics: – Bring a range of weights from thicker upholstery fabrics to fine cotton shirting. old clothing, bed sheets and pillow cases also work well too.
– Think about how your fabrics work together as we will be using them to arrange collage compositions.
