Workshop with Kay Murray

When: ***** WORKSHOP POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE** Apologies for any inconvenience

Where: Epping Creative Centre, 26 Stanley Rd, Epping

Cost: $65 for members and $100 for non-members (Morning tea provided)

In this workshop you will create a small piece of textile art while learning the techniques of fabric collage using free motion stitching to create a textured background.

The elements of the composition will be appliquéd using the raw edge fused method with free motion stitching. We will be looking at creating depth within your collage through the use of appropriate colour and value selection. If time allows, some embellishment of the design may be possible. A design will be provided on the day and it can be interpreted either realistically or abstractly.

If you have ever wanted to try free motion stitching but not quite known how, this workshop may be for you. You will learn how to set up your machine including altering the tension to make an effective stitch and know what adjustments to make when trouble shooting. For the class you will need to have a sewing machine that allows the lowering or covering of the feed and a darning foot.
