'All that glitters...'
Anne Griffiths.

2018 Course listing coming soon.

Monday 24th to Friday 28th July
Using manuscripts as our starting point we will create our own version in mixed media and stitch. We will use old wooden printing blocks to emboss tomato puree tubes, experiment with acrylic paint, ormaline and bronzing powders together with fimo clay, to create letters, tiles and perhaps a stumpwork creature or piece of fruit to decorate your personal letter or text. These backgrounds can be stitched using either using hand or machine embroidery (if you bring your machine I happy to review free machine embroidery). Finished pieces have been popular to mark births, birthdays and special anniversaries. They can also be made into small ring cushions for weddings.
There will be a small charge of about 3 to cover bronzing powders, ormalene, paint etc. A full list of materials will be provided later and I will bring additional bits and pieces which can be bought.
