Using a selection of wooden hand-carved Indian printing blocks, print a design and embellish using a variety of hand embroidery stitches, sequins and beads. Designs including elephants, peacocks, and lovely paisley patterns will be provided and you will learn how to achieve successful prints every time, how to look after your wooden blocks and how to make your piece of work totally unique, ready to display as a wall-hanging, cushion or book cover.
Please bring a basic sewing kit, apron and any pretty threads that you would like to use.
Note: Julia will provide cotton fabric, pack of threads and beads and sequins needed for the workshop – cost £2.00 (If you’re bringing your own – silk or fabric with a loose weave such as muslin would work equally well but may need stabilising with a light wadding). Extra fabric and threads and beads for future projects will be available from Julia for a nominal fee.
