Come and join me in learning the process off transfer painting - which is transferring a painted picture onto fabric using a specialised paint.
There will be a variety of pre-drawn designs to chose from which you can colour. Or if you are feeling adventurous you can create your own design!
We will lay cotton fabric on top of the painted design and sandwich the two between two pieces of baking parchment. Using a hot press I will then transfer your design on to the fabric. Once the fabric has cooled we will back it with wadding and embroider over the designs. I will demonstrate a few easy stitches to get you started.
All materials are included. This workshop is suitable for ages 8 - 80+.
You don’t need any sewing experience or artistic flair. Just a passion for creating something different. 🙂
