One Day Course
This is an Introduction to Stitchbooking workshop that aims to give you all of the tools and advice you need to make your own Stitchbook – a textile memory book featuring your photos printed onto fabric.
The course will run from 10 – 3.30pm and will have a half hour break for lunch.
The course fee includes a Stitchbook Starter Kit (usually £35) which contains the construction materials for a 11.5 x 15cm Stitchbook with 8 pages. These include the background pages, the binding strips and rings and a selection of stampers and embellishments for you to use on your stitchbook.
During the workshop I will guide you through the main skills needed to produce your Stitchbook including printing your photos onto fabric, adding text and constructing the pages.
You will have time during the day to try out all of the techniques and make a start on the pages for your own book. Hopefully by the end of the day you will have the confidence and understanding of how to complete the rest of your Stitchbook.
You need to have a basic level of sewing knowledge and have access to basic sewing supplies at home (not necessarily a sewing machine). Minimum age is 14.
After purchase I will email you with a list of suggested supplies to bring along, and instructions on simple preparations you can make, such as thinking of a theme for your book and collecting photographs.
Please feel free to message me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the workshop.
