Inspired by a collection of C20th painters you will analyse and translate their painterly qualities into fabrics.  This process can be the foundation of future developments and is an excellent format for establishing new directions in your creative work. Its a fast fun and addictive.

By the end of the day you’ll have discovered a collection of techniques to help you gain the most from an embellisher.  There will be a series of samples for you to continually refer to which will support your ongoing textile development PLUS a larger finished piece to be admired by friends & family.

  • I did this course today and it was sensational. I loved it. If you like the idea of creating a picture or other masterpiece with a sewing machine but are reluctant because you can’t sew, fear not. This is the course for you. No need even to thread a needle. And Dionne walks you through every step.
    I have done the free embroidery day as well as appliqué and the embellishment workshop fits in well with these, allowing you to create a piece of work using all three of the techniques if you were so minded.

    Highly recommended.
