‘Birds of a Fabric Feather’
Learn how to make a hand stitched, 3d textile bird using felt, vintage fabric and haberdashery. You can choose to make him into a hanging decoration or standing on his own two feet. Great fun to make. Be warned - they can be addictive!

‘Yours Faithfully: Writing in Stitch’

 During this workshop we will explore a range of hand stitch techniques to create a textile piece 'written' in stitch using vintage fabrics and a variety of threads. Enjoy the pleasure of ‘doodling’ in stitch.
You might find it helpful to bring along a favourite short poem or quote for inspiration.

I wish I lived nearer. I love those birds!

Thanks Gina! There's still a lot of room for development with the upright birds. It's fun experimenting though!
