Colour on colour: the coloured clutch


Next Available: Mon, 22 Jan 10:00AM
6.0 hours x 1 classes

Description

Simple stitches in a variety of yarns have an enormous impact when embellishing hessian fabric painted in blocks of colour. In this class, you'll learn how to select complementary and contrasting threads to decorate the hessian, which can then be used to make the outside surface of a simple bag. Also learn some more complex embroidery stitches to enhance the stitched surface. And you'll receive instruction on how to finish your clutch - the techniques for construction will be useful in many other projects.

Even more experienced stitchers will most likely find some aspects new and interesting.

Date: Monday 22 January 2018  Time: 10:00am-4:00pm

Class fee: $135 includes materials

Materials provided by the Tutor: a piece of painted hessian for your clutch plus an extra piece for practicing your stitches, a bag of yarns (enough to cover the surface), and a needle (#14 tapestry).

Guest Tutor: Mary Webster is a textile artist with a love of colour. Textile art has been her passion for many years and she took it seriously enough to undertake and to complete, by correspondence, a Diploma in Textile Art from City and Guilds, London.

20 September 2017 • Colour on colour: the coloured clutch

One of the best workshops I have been to recently! Wasn't sure what to expect from a "color on color embellishment" workshop but Mary certainly delivered! We learnt all about the different yarns Mary had brought for us in our kits, each with their own story - and I got to consolidate on my embroidery stitch knowledge. Well worth the cost - more than worth the value!
