Using Decorative Stitches for Fabric Design
Thu 22 June 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
For the past 20 years Jayne has sold her fabric designs to both fashion and interiors to companies ranging from Calvin Klein to John Lewis. In this Masterclass Jayne will bring along her archive of swatches for inspiration and discussion. She will guide you through her techniques and ‘fabric recipes’ to make unique and effective linear, chequered and repeat designs. Jayne will bring an array of fabrics and threads to use but please feel free to bring your own too. We will be working on plain cottons but also tearing up chiffons, working into shirtings and chopping up prints! These fabrics can then be used to add a designer touch to a sewing project or used as a decorative ground for further embellishment. By the end of the day you will have amassed a stack of samples and see all the stitches on your sewing machine in a totally new light! This class includes a buffet lunch.
