2021 WORKSHOPS - SUBJECT TO CORONAVIRUS REGULATIONS
19th and 20th June 2021
“A New Lease of Life”
Around a theme of “A New Lease of Life”, this workshop is an opportunity to utilise some of the treasured fabrics or sewing items you have kept and always wanted to use but couldn’t find the application or inspiration. I will show you how to use hand stitch on very unlikely items to create a richly decorated and very personal book.
26th and 27th June 2021
“It’s A Wrap”
Make three or four small books and a decorated wrap with pockets to hold them. The books can be individual or a set on one subject, e.g. the seasons, types of flowers, wildlife, sewing items, etc. The wrap can be richly embellished to reflect the contents. We will bring the material, it’s called ‘Wall Doctor’ lining paper for construction of the wrap and the books - we will sell small pieces very cheaply to save you buying a whole roll. The emphasis on the workshop is that the books are small, no bigger than 2ins x 2½ ins (5cm x 7.5cm) which will limit the size of the inclusions. Students should bring items they may want to put in their little books or to use as inspiration - photos, small scraps of fabric, tickets or any other small printed memorabilia.
The proceeds of these workshops goes to the Red Cross.
Booking well in advance is recommended as the workshops are extremely popular.
