Event description

Description

This Autumn, Eco Upcycler Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw and Bookbinder Cassandra Barron, invite you into their studios in Edinburgh and Glasgow, for a unique series of textile upcycling and bookbinding workshops.

The workshops will each explore a different technique that can be used to transform pre-loved denim, before using your creations to make a hard or soft-bound journal.

Join us for one workshop or come along to all three for a monthly fix of creativity as the nights draw in.

In this workshop we will . . .

Experiment with bleach resist printing onto denim to create organic eyecatching blue and white designs, similar to shibori. Elisabeth will work with you to introduce a range of simple but effective mark making techniques in the morning and Cassandra will then guide you in creating a French Link Stitch Journal, using your printed fabric to form a hard front and back cover.

Tea, coffee and sweet treats will be provided and you are invited to bring your own lunch.

Class sizes will be kept small to allow for a decent sized work space and a relaxed workshop with the opportunity to get to know like-minded people. All materials are included but you are invited to help with our recycling effort by bringing an old pair of jeans/or denim item ready to be recycled.

This is a great opportunity to learn a range of new skills in a creative environment and produce a personalised book that makes for a unique and usable sketchbook, journal and/or photo album - a great personal project or environmental present for a loved one.

If you have access requirements, please get in touch to discuss how we can support your visit.

**Spaces on this class are limited and there will be no refunds or transfers once a booking has been made, unless your place can be filled from a waiting list, in which case the full fee will be refunded. If the workshop is cancelled for any reason, you will be offered either a cash refund or the option of being transferred to an alternative event.**
