Your inspiration for the weekend will be a wonderful animal or birds from Kate’s printed panels.
Kate will bring along her printed animal and bird panels for you to choose from. She will show you how she has created vibrant designs using the birds and animals as the focus of the picture.
Kate will guide you through the process to create simple but effective settings for your creature – perhaps a woodland scene, or open countryside, or cliffs and the sea for the puffins. Kate will show you a simple way to cut and attach your background, before bonding down your creature, ready for some free motion stitching. Simpler designs can be managed with standard straight stitch however and can also be embellished with hand stitching – your choice!
Kate expects a design approximately 40cm square to be created, but if you have something else in mind – perhaps two smaller pieces, or something long and thin, then she will help you achieve your project. Outcomes from this weekend could be used as a wall hanging – or framed and glazed. Alternatively, the piece could be used on a bag, cushion or other projects.
