lino prints

 

lino print workshop

Embellished Lino Prints on Fabric

with Louise Nichols

The workshop will be spread out over two days during which we will be designing, printing & embellishing lino prints to create unique pictures or wall hangings.

We will begin by using a sketch, photograph or other image that inspires you to create a design that you'll carve out of lino & print onto fabric.

Once the prints are dry you'll embellish them with a selection of threads, yarns, fabrics & whatever other decoration you choose. The finished embellished prints can then be made into either a hanging panel or mounted ready for framing.

If you wish you can just do the second embellishment day and Louise will bring some of her pre-printed designs for you to work on.

With a choice of lino printed images – Hare, Bird or Cow Parsley

with Louise Nichols

Using a mix of lino printed images, fabric & felt, create the wall hanging of your choice. You can make the hanging as large or small as you wish using your own selection of the elements available. It will involve machine applique (although it can be purely hand sewn) and a variety of simple hand stitches to create lots of texture.

Clematis Wall Hanging

with Marlene Chaffey

This raw edge appliqué technique will teach you a different way to create a simple wall hanging and you will be surprised at your creativity.

You will start by piecing a very simple trellis background and then learn how to construct individual flowers on release paper. With guidance, you will then learn how to position stems, leaves and flowers on to the background, without the aid of a pattern, to create an individual piece of work.  Machine and hand stitching will be used for embellishment.

books , wrap for books

“It’s a Wrap”

with Frances Pickering

Make three or four small books and a decorated wrap with pockets to hold them. The books can be individual or a set on one subject, e.g. the seasons, types of flowers, wildlife, sewing items, etc. The wrap can be richly embellished to reflect the contents. 

We will bring the material, it’s called ‘Wall Doctor’ lining paper,* for construction of the wrap and the books - we will sell it very cheaply to save you buying a whole roll. 

The emphasis on the workshop is that the books are small (no bigger than 2” x 2½”) which will limit the size of the inclusions.

Students should bring items they may want to put in their little books or to use as inspiration - photos, small scraps of fabric, tickets or any other small printed memorabilia.

Students then hand stitch into their paintings with stranded cottons, adding texture and detail, to create a beautiful soft focus plant study.

Suitable for all levels of ability.

printing

White Line Printing

with Nicky Harwood

White line printing is an exciting print process developed in Provincetown, MA during the 1920’s.

Using watercolours allows the printer to make strong bold prints or washed out ethereal ones and everything in-between. No time consuming ink preparation, no registration issues and no standing in line waiting for the press means that everyone can work at their own speed producing stunning prints.

During the day participants will learn the basic principles of the process before being encouraged to experiment creating a number of monoprints. All materials and equipment are provided at a small extra cost.

Working on a single printing plate and requiring no press, white line printing can easily be continued at home and all students will take home their own printing plate and extra paper.

 

Wednesday 6th June 2018

10.00am to 4.00pm

Cost £38

applique

Imaginary Panel

with Annette Emms

In this workshop we will make a small panel featuring an imaginary bird or figure in appliqué. The background is made from a wool fabric which is covered with scraps of scrim and then needle felted by hand or using an embellisher machine. The panel will then be decorated and embellished with fabrics, lace and found objects.

Hand stitching and appliqué creates a special and personal panel for a bag, a picture, or cushion cover, etc.

Suitable for all levels of ability.
