Saturday 8th July 10.00 - 4.00
This workshop by Janet Humphrey will focus on using a blank vintage postcard pre-printed on to fabric (which Janet will supply). Members will embellish the postcard with images of birds, butterflies, flowers etc., and then add texture with delicate hand embroidery: French knots, seeding, stem stitch and shading.
There are still a couple of places left on this workshop. If you are interested, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org or 07715664084 / 01926 338987 (please leave a message)
Please note: there will be an extra charge of £1.00 per student per postcard.
