Saturday 27th March to Sunday 28th March

For this workshop you will take inspiration from nature and your favourite garden birds to create a freestanding bird box. Within the two days, you will combine image transfer using laser photocopies, fabric collage and free machine embroidery. Particular attention is given to the front and lid of your box. You may also wish to use vintage embroideries for some panels. When you're happy with your pieces, a stiffening fabric and lining are added and we can start to stitch them together. As the lids are hinged, they are not only decorative but make perfect sewing boxes.
There will be a materials cost of £8 per student.
