Paint, appliqué, knots, needle weaving, fabric manipulation and beading are combined to create a textured, abstract composition.  The overall design will evolve in an organic way based on your initial colour and shape choices. There will be lots of examples to inform your choices and all stages and stitches will be demonstrated. Mounting and framing options will also be discussed.  The following materials will be provided for you:  - Painted and unpainted silk, linen and muslin  - Woven and non woven iron on interfacing  - Lumiere and dyna flow fabric paints  - Hand embroidery threads. Including perle, stranded, metallic and textured  - Bead selection  All painting equipment will be provided. You need to bring:  - Fabric and thread cutting scissors  - Hand embroidery needles Crewel needles and tapestry needles. Medium to larger sizes. Small size crewel needle for beading.  - Dorothy will be bringing a selection of beads including lentil beads but if you have any unusual beads or buttons you would like to include feel free to bring them along.  Flat beads are particularly useful.  These items can be sourced from specialist stockists such as Lingards in Sudbury or various online sources. This workshop is an introduction to a new and exciting medium, which hopefully will inspire you to explore the further possibilities at home.
