1 customer review


Designed to take you through a series of innovative techniques using a multitude of different materials all brought together with free motion embroidery.  The course covers illustration, composition, and painting techniques with inks from your chosen design source on the first day followed by working with water soluble and cords to create 3-d elements on the second day.


You will spend the first day working with Koh i noor inks and various other paints and metallic wax to produce a textural background with lens tissue, papers and string before on the second day stitching into your designs using your floral pictures as a design source. You will be taken through a series of steps to create the triptych using sheers and stitch to link all the pieces. On the second day I will show you how to create 3d elements to add to your piece – ie flower heads and leaves using water soluble in a hoop.
This Wall Panel will be completed at home but you will leave with all the necessary machine embroidery techniques and media knowledge to complete it.

    2 action packed days tutored by Alex who is great at explaining what to do and even if you think you haven’t got it right she works her magic so that everyone achieves a great piece of work. You learn lots of techniques with ink, paint, fabric and stitch to make lovely 3D panels. You are inspired by Alex’s boundless creativity to make your own interpretation. You come away amazed by what’s been achieved by the group and the skills you need to complete your panel.
    I would definitely recommend the course.
