Inhouse Workshop

 

Tuesday 13th February 2018

 

 

This months meeting is a mini workshop where we will be assembling cards from our red embroidered rectangles. If you didn't make one don't worry,  we will have spare ones which you can use.  If possible please bring these few things with you, but do not go out and buy anything you don't have as I'm sure others will share.

  • Watercolour or gouache or brusho in several colours e.g. blue, orange green, yellow. White for mixing
  • A paintbrush suitable for a wash
  • A ruler - any length but 30cm (12inches) or less is best
  • a pot for water

 

Please bring a piece of work (finished or not )which you would like to show. It would be particularly interesting to see one of your first pieces. We will be sitting in groups so you won't have to stand out in front of the whole group just pass your work around and tell those next to you a bit about it. 

 

We will  also have a "Been there done that" stall for members to bring textile related items to sell.

 

Please use the contact page if you have any questions regarding joining us for the evening 

 

Linda Onions

 Tuesday 13th March 2018 

Linda (Lynn) Onions, textile artist and teacher.

I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, I had dreams of being a fashion designer but ended up making curtains and soft furnishings for a living! (Windows don’t change size!) My initial training was in dressmaking and pattern cutting but my first employed job was as a trainee curtain maker, so I trained, learnt the tricks of the trade and then worked for myself. Now I teach all different textile skills: dressmaking, patchwork and quilting, embroidery, and soft furnishings.

Stitched Papers - New Developments 

 

Hangings, framed and mounted pieces, books and vessels made using tissue paper which is either hand-dyed or painted with watercolour, embellished with free machine embroidery and layered using a papier mâché technique.

Other work is composed of handmade paper, made from recycling waste paper and thread, which is then stitched.

Limited edition prints, photographs, hand dyed and handmade papers and cards also available.

Based in Hampshire, I am a Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and PaperWEIGHT
