Project Textiles 2 – ‘A Reel For Life’ Wall Hanging


This is a mixed media textile course designed for those confident with the sewing machine and wishing to design a completed wall hanging inspired by motifs found in the natural world.


You could use insects, butterflies, shells, flowers  – anything goes for your inspiration, but you will work with wooden stamps, commercial /your own acetate stencils printed on organza, cotton and tissues /papers/ textural wall papers, linked with free motion and hand stitch.  I will encourage you to work with two colours and use gold or silver additions if you wish. Course involves a day of demonstrated Gelli printing effects ( you will need to provide your own gelli plate)  paper lamination, Tyvek and foiled Lutrador additions. There is a requirements list so I would suggest you check it out before booking.  All images shown are from Lost The Thread and Stitchers Inc members.  The course is four studio days with work at home in between. Final session will concentrate on linking all elements together.
