Experiment with composition, using over lapping layers of translucent fabrics to build areas of different colours and tones. Create a collage that is the backdrop for your hand stitching. Using a variety of media including pencil, ink and silk paint, see how you can transfer images on to silk organza. Mark making with stitch, experiment with stitch length and density. On this course you will make a series of test pieces. If you would like to work from your own drawings and/or photographs please bring them along.

The workshop is 10 - 4pm
