old painted and dyed newspaper layered with painted Bondaweb to create a firm surface on which to stitch and print
It is always good to write new courses and stretch yourself (and your students). I have been looking forward to teaching A New Starting Point - a workshop based on using old painted and dyed newspapers as a base for just about anything you fancy but including stitch and print. The surfaces can be layered to create samples firm enough to make into boxes or vessels. This should be a very exciting course which could lead in many directions.
I will be delivering this 2 day course at Moor Hall, Bobby Britnell's workshop in Newcastle on Clun, Shropshire SY7 8PH, we could do with a few more students - if you know of anyone that might be interested - do forward this blog to them . . . . .
As well as layering newspaper with painted Bondaweb we will be experimenting with faux chenille using newspaper - another great opportunity for an unusual background on which to stitch by hand or machine . . . . . this is a link to Bobby's website should you be interested.
I will also be giving a lecture on the night of the 6th at Marches Embroiderers Guild so if you fancy a good laugh - do come along!!!
Now back to that list . . . . x
