!!This is a new course!!
Designed for ladies with some experience of FME, or perhaps previous students who have taken part in my Creative Machine Embroidery Course, but want to explore the use of Fabric painting/ Colour & Texture to create their own unique fabrics to use in your embroidered artwork.
If you are a quilter and fancy being more creative in building up a landscape picture, or and an embroiderer, who needs more creative direction, this will be invaluable.
We will explore fabric painting/ mark making and texture in the morning, hand painting and laying out fabrics. I will run through a series of demos in the afternoon on FME techniques, for you to follow and brush up on, tension tests abc appropriate stitch mark making for your final piece.
Using your beautifully painted fabrics from the previous day, we will work on layering up an embroidered picture, using a landscape theme. This can be an image of your own resource; a photograph, greetings card, or an image on an iPad. I shall guide you through the creative process of layering fabric to create a landscape composition to embroider.
