Print & Stitch II
Gelli-plate printing and embroidery
Textile artist, Michelle Kinniment and myself are teaming up again for a rerun of this successful workshop.
Join us for a great weekend learning how to print on fabric using
gelli-plate printing. Embellish it with machine or hand embroidery for a project of your own or to make an extra special album or book cover.
On Day 1, under Carol's direction, we will be exploring a wide range of pattern making techniques and mark making tools to create wonderful printed surfaces on cotton fabric.
On Day 2, with Michelle's expert guidance, you will begin by choosing the areas of your project that you wish to embellish with either free machine stitching or hand embroidery or both. You will then decide how you want to use the embroidered fabric. You might wish to create a special book or album cover or take a different path of your own. Michelle and Carol will be on hand to advise throughout!
You will come away from this course with a recipe for making your own gelli-plates and plenty of ideas on how to print with it at home. You will also acquire a range of new machine and hand embroidery skills. Finally, you will leave with an extra special journal, photo album or sketchbook cover to keep or give as a gift. Alternatively, depending on the project’s scal, you will have progressed your chosen project to (or close to completion.
