This is a textile art play day.

Our expert tutor and mixed media artist Helen will show you how to work with hot and spun textiles, to
create spectacular effects. You can use these in creative stitch textile art and crafting projects. The spun textiles do not fray or tear and come in different weights for different effects and finished textile art creations.

One of our favourite Lutradur projects is making vases which can then become lanterns. The textile is decorated, stitched and embellished before being heat distressed. It is then formed around a glass jar which will hold either water or a tea light.

You will learn to add a design with both appliqué and free machine stitch techniques. Create a shaped edge and relief details. This workshop is suitable for those confident in using a sewing machine and is suitable for both those new to Lutradur and to those wanting to develop their techniques.
