TEXTILE ART “CARPET OF LEAVES”
This is such a simple, yet delightfully effective way to create beautiful leaves with the shape, size and colour palette of your choice. This lovely technique can have endless applications, such as accessories, home decorations, wall panels, book covers and even Wearable Art!
Previous experience is not essential. Free motion embroidery gives a unique opportunity for artistic, individual expression and I will teach it those who are unsure about this skill.
You may like to make a journal cover or small canvas in this workshop but come prepared to enjoy the day and have fun.

TEXTILE ART “THE ARTFUL LEAF”
These colourful little artworks are not only a joy to create but can be bright additions to clothing, positioned together to form “fabric”, made into brooches or applied to bags and accessories, along with many other ideas.
Some experience with free motion machine embroidery is needed. If your knowledge is limited however and you are keen to learn, I am happy to teach you. The main requirement is practice once you have learnt the basics.
