Lace bowls and Modern Doilies
Wed 27 September 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Water soluble fabric is such an exciting ingredient to use in machine embroidery and it has so many possibilities. In this workshop we will spend the morning exploring the idea of 3D bowls using an entanglement of fancy yarns, sequins and stitch. The bowls can be as simple or embellished as you wish, these will then be left to dry while we spend the afternoon making modern lace doilies. Again using water-soluble fabric, this time in combination with bondaweb, we will layer fabrics together and cut them to form a design. Jayne will bring along a treasure trove of fabrics and threads to explore and use, she will also bring Bondaweb and water soluble fabric; please do feel free though to bring along any of your own fabric and threads that you would like to use. The day really is about experimentation and play with the added bonus of taking home two beautiful finished items for your home. A buffet lunch is also included!
