I have been fortunate enough to visit India twice in 2019. I learnt a lot about block printing and fell in love with the technique and the blocks themselves, which I consider as little works of art, hand carved and beautifully made.
I have had a lot of my own designs made into blocks; the mandalas are no exception. Of course, I could not have them made into dinner plate sizes so I had to think of another way to make my prints bigger to create these Marvellous Mandalas.
We will be using my favourite material, craft Vliesilene (vilene), transfer dye paints and free motion stitching, if you are not confident with free motion stitching where a darning foot is required, you can stitch with a normal foot, but it will take longer. We will also be using a soldering tool to cut away the excess vilene and for mark making.
As long as your happy using your sewing machine this workshop is for you !
