In this workshop we will be working with Lutradur, an exciting man made fabric that can be painted, cut with scissors or a soldering iron, distressed with a heat gun and stitched by hand or machine.  The design we will be basing our work on is constructed using lots of layering.  Students are free to follow the example shown or, better still, they can bring along photos or sketches and design their own version of the “forest”.


Day one will be spent working on our design and layout and producing painted samples of ferns, shrubs, trees or whatever else you may wish to include.  By the end of the day we will bring all of our elements together ready for stitching.


Day two we will be using our sewing machines and applying hand embroidery to bring our work to life.
