Textile Printing Techniques by Hand
When: Friday October 12th
Where: Bernina Studio, Lane Cove Gallery + Creative Studios
Time: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Instructor: Vivien Haley
Full details and booking: Click here

In a world of mass production the interest and passion for making by hand has been embraced and in high demand.  Designing, printing and making soft furnishings and your own clothes can be a very creative process.  Using natural fibres and printing only what you need, is also more environmentally sound and can be more cost-effective.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together in one design various printing techniques; stencils, stamps and block printing.  You will create your own motifs and patterns after looking at your overall design idea.  There will be discussion on how best to print them onto fabric as some motifs/designs work best as a repeat pattern or placement print.

Webmaster Note: I’ve done this workshop with Vivien at another venue in the past and she is a great teacher with a sound approach to designing.

Stitch Play
When: Wednesday October 10th
Where: Guy Warren Studio, Lane Cove Gallery + Creative Studios
Time: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Instructor: Rhonda Pryor
Full details and booking: Click here

Spend a day playing with the squillions of variations you can make using a single hand stitch! Take that line for a walk, as they say, by using a needle and thread.  You’ll make a gorgeous, one-off, pure (heavy weight) linen table runner for yourself, or as a gift for someone special.  You’ll find this a meditative and absorbing experience!

All materials, equipment and resource sheets will be included.
