24/04/14You will be shown how to use a variety of art materials and everyday papers, such as sweet wrappers which can be bonded together either with a heat gun or with an iron to create sparkling and intensely coloured images, which may be layered together to use as the basis for jewellery pieces, covering notebooks, greetings cards or simply as lovely pictures to frame and enjoy.
Techniques will include, Angelina fibres, iridescent papers, sequin waste, sweet wrappers, embossing powders and a variety of papers and inks.
This can be offered as a half day class to produce a series of samples to develop at your leisure or this workshop may be combined with sone free machine stitching to enhance and extend the range of techniques available.

I will be taking a workshop on this theme at the Drift Gallery at Lytham St Annes on Sunday November 25th where as it is near Christmas, we will be considering how these techniques may be used for Christmas cards, decorations or gifts.
Each person will make some greetings cards and a brooch to take home and you will also make a small handmade journal to record your experiences for future reference.This will not be using machine stitching as it's a single session but we may be able to add this at a later date.
It's great fun and suitable for beginners but not for younger children due to the use of hot irons and heat guns.

Numbers will be kept small to give you plenty of individual attention
