surface embellishment series- custom make sequins

We have designed a series of surface embellishments classes for winter. They complement each other graciously.

Take a hand to the scalpel in this surface embellishment class with Rosie Ford. She will teach you the techniques and processes used to create your own customised sequins using scissors, scalpels and sequin punches. Experiment with unusual textiles, along with pre-made sequins and beads to develop a collection of samples. Infuse poetry into some of your forgotten textile treasures and bring them back into the limelight or incorporate embellished panels  into the construction of a pattern. A selection of floral arrangements, compliments of Cecilia Fox, will be serve as inspiration for form and colour.

Saturday 13th of August 10-4pm.
