Fabric pictures

2 days: 15th-16th August

The main aim of the workshop is to encourage students to develop their own ideas – with Janet’s help readily available. Working directly with the fabric, Janet explains and demonstrates the simple sewing techniques required. Janet is a fan of letting each piece develop as it progresses, sometimes moving away from the original idea quite dramatically.

What students will achieve

Janet will inspire you to compose textile pictures using the simplest of hand sewing techniques. She will share her signature ‘needle turning’ appliqué method and help you discover different ways to shape and finish your work. She will demonstrate the exciting process of cutting shapes, rearranging and sewing down the various elements until a pleasing composition is achieved.
