Monoprinting for stitch is a fun workshop to learn some easy textile art skills. It's aimed at patchworkers, quilters and aspiring textile artists and crafters. If you've not tried Mono-printing, then you'll not know what you're missing. But take it from me, it's a whole heap of fun and it's much easier than it looks. It's a great way of creating your own designs to inspire embroidery and collage. So if you like quilting, patchwork or any form of fabric craft, then why not give it a go? It's also a really quick way of creating decorative papers for cardmaking.

What will I learn?
Firstly, I’ll show you how to make your own mark-making tools and printing blocks using everyday items. I love to use 'found' objects from nature, such as feathers and leaves. These unique marks will enable you to totally personalize your work. Then I’ll demonstrate various mono-printing techniques to create colour and pattern on paper or fabric. You will then spend some time creating your own collection of printed materials (papers and/or fabrics). Finally, we’ll look at how colour and pattern can inspire stitch. You can use hand or machine embroidery to further embellish your work. You could collage or piece your fabrics together to produce a totally unique cushion, bag or wallhanging/quilt. This class will free you from having to buy commercial printed fabrics. It will add a whole new dimension to your work. It's the easiest way to learn how to design your own unique artworks.

Course arrangements
When you come to Mono-printing for Stitch and see how easy and fun it is to make your own gorgeous collage materials, you won't want to buy fabric ever again.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Monoprinting for Stitch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
