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?
- how to make your own mark-making tools and printing blocks using everyday items.
- use of 'found' objects from nature, such as feathers and leaves. -various mono-printing techniques to create positive and negative prints
- how colour, pattern and texture can inspire stitch.
-how to combine your prints to create a stitched collage. You can use hand or machine embroidery to further embellish your work.
You could 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.
