Do you have a collection of natural treasures that you’d like to use in your work but are not sure how? This workshop will explore ways of combining fabrics, found objects, natural treasures such as feathers and shells and hand embroidery to create beautiful mini hangings.
In this workshop, we will explore combining different fabrics, hand embroidery and natural objects such as shells and feathers to create unique textile artworks. We will look at different hand embroidery stitches, methods of attaching found objects, ways of hanging our work and ways of adding texture and movement to our work. During the session we will each work on a small textile hanging; some students may complete theirs in the day whilst others may wish to carry on at home. This will be a lovely relaxing session, a great opportunity to slow down and enjoy some creative time.
