Discover the creative potential of thread and stitch in combination with dissolvable fabric.  You’ll learn how to draw with a sewing machine and explore the delights of creating delicate lace like items, we’ll consider colour mixing and varied thread types too.

I’ll have a series of examples to assist and inspire your creations, so you don’t need to worry about the design, simply enjoy discovering a new method of working: All the skills you’ll learn are transferable to other projects.

I’ve recently added a new dimension to this workshop – some of you may wish to explore a drawn landscape or composition to create something similar to the pieces in the video above.

Reviews

  • I really enjoyed this workshop, lovely to learn the rudiments and start to experiment, with some individual attention and advice. This approach is far more likely to grow legs once you get home rather than all making a fixed item. I am now hungry for more and will definitely book again with Dionne.

  • Had a very interesting and inspiring day, can’t wait to get my sewing machine out at home and continue exploring the technique. Very relaxed, friendly day with great content, plenty of hands-on learning and were very well looked after with regards to refreshments. Can totally recommend this day and I hope to book on future courses.

  • Another winning workshop. Each time I attend a course with Dionne, my head fizzes with excitement. My only complaint is that the time goes in the blink of an eye and the day is over. I often use freehand machine embroidery , but my technique has had an overhaul and I’m changing and improving what I do. Without Dionne I was destined to repeat my bad habits and less productive methods. Bravo Dionne.

  • A very interesting workshop that focussed on thread & stitch – and what amazing fabrics you can create. This technique has lots of potential for abstract work, jewellery and paintings. Also really enjoyed the Powerpoint presentation of the work of some leading textile artists who create pieces in this medium. Cake excellent, too!
