Programme Overview

An opportunity to make Textile Craft projects using a variety of sewing, surface pattern design and crafting techniques. Try the batik resist technique where liquid wax is applied to the fabric surface and colourful dyes are then hand painted to create vibrantly patterned designs. This technique can be used on a canvas tote bag and to design fabrics to stash for future projects. Hand roll merino wool felt using your own unique colour selections. The finished sheet of felt will be cut and stitched into a fold over purse, a needle book or a corsage. Dry needle felting techniques will be used to sculpt the wool into three dimensional objects and add fine detail. The felt sculptures can be decorative beads, animals or flowers which can be used to make jewellery or a miniature scene inside a glass jar. 

On completion of this course, you will take home several beautiful and useful pieces that will make ideal personalised gifts.
