Hand Embroidery – Performing Pop Up Boxes & Books with Kathleen Laurel Sage
In this monthly hand embroidery class, you will create a pop up, pop out hidey hole book or box demonstrating all your embroidery skills and newfound construction skills. The aim is to create an interactive project where pages are part of another page, pages unfold outwards, flaps lift up, pull out or are hidden waiting to be found.  Hide embroidered letters and clues to be found.  You will be shown how to work the stitches you need and how to construct openings, sliding pieces and pop ups.
10 am – 4 pm

Messy Play for Textiles

Do you have machine skills but wish you could use them on your own designed fabrics?  Then this is the course for you.  We will get to grips with all the messy play that can help you achieve your own unique fabrics to use in your stitching projects.Each month we will look at a project that requires you to make, print or colour your fabrics to use in it and will cover topics such as lino printing, waxed fabric canvasses, hot wax resists, light-reactive dyes, screen printing and carving your own blocks to print.  You will then use your machine to make the project, or you can just enjoy the play and collect a portfolio of designs to refer to in future projects.
