This workshop is an introduction to working with faces using hand stitch & appliqué (machine stitch optional) and includes:
How to use your own drawings or photographs as a starting point.
How to start a piece of work using some of the simple processes Sue uses herself including transferring an image to fabric using tissue paper, different types of appliqué, drawing with backstitch and running stitch.
How to use sampling as an aid to deciding which techniques to use.
A look at different ways to present your finished work.
By the end of the workshop participants will have a piece of work started to work on at home and the necessary skills to develop their own figurative work further.
