If you’re new to textile art, this easy-to-follow video tutorial is a fabulous and playful way to get started.
Your four mixed-media collages will be small in scale but big in impact!
You’ll try out simple painting, printing and embroidery techniques. Then assemble your hand-made, embellished elements into a gorgeous collection you’re proud of.
I’ll show you how you can work with:
All of these are available in shops and online. You’ll receive a comprehensive supplies list as soon as you sign up, and can gather as many of the items as you like.
You’ll try out fabric paints and/or acrylic paints on all these different bases, using brushes and other interesting tools for mark-making.
Applying paint directly onto items such as feathers, leaves and seedheads, you’ll discover how easy it is to create fabulous monoprinted effects.
At this stage we’ll work on larger pieces of fabric, to give you plenty of space to play, and lots to choose from when you’re ready to assemble your mini artworks.
Now you can lay out all your different elements and learn how to select and combine them in a way that feels balanced, harmonious and pleasing to the eye. It’s sooooo satisfying.
I’m constantly wowed by embroidery’s power to transform a collage.
We’ll use the botanical shapes created by our monoprinting to guide the stitching.
If you’re new to free motion embroidery, this is a brilliant opportunity to discover the freedom and creativity it allows. It’s not scary! I’ll show you how to set up your machine and get started.
(You can always stick to hand stitching if you prefer.)
Having a photo as a starting point will give you a focus for the shapes, colours and textures in your abstract art.
You might like to start thinking now about an image to work from. You can browse online, or select from your own photos. Alternatively you can use the photo I share in the tutorial.
You’ll follow the step-by-step demonstrations at home, whenever suits you.
With lifetime access to the tutorial, you can always enjoy the project again in future, perhaps inspired by a different image.
All you need is a desire to get creative with paint, fabric and thread. Sign up to discover what you can do.
I want to encourage as many people as possible to discover the joy of textile art.
That’s why I’m offering lifetime access to this comprehensive, detailed and beautifully presented workshop for just £45.
If you are based in the USA the price conversion is $56 at the time of publishing. Please check with your bank for any extra charges.
You’ll receive your supplies list, a welcome video and instructions for setting up your sewing machine for free motion embroidery as soon as you book.
The tutorial will then go live on Wednesday 21st June at 10am. You’ll have ongoing access from then on.
