2 days: 20th-21st August   Fee: £230

Janet composes textile pictures using the simplest of hand sewing techniques. Her inspiration comes from visual experience, memory, imagination – and sometimes from some quality inspired by the material itself. Join this class to share her techniques and inspiration.


What students will achieve

The main aim of this 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 techniques required. 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. As Janet says, “the emphasis is what you place where”.
