Workshop "Appliqué: from fabric scraps to a textile composition"

Discover the pleasure of feeling textures and experimenting with shapes and colours.

Appliqué is a fascinating craft that lets your work intuitively en creatively with colours and materials.

During this workshop, you will work with needle, thread and fabric scraps that you will apply to a surface of your choosing. This could be a shirt, a pillow cover, a canvas tote, etc.

Your inspiration is simple: a drawing, a photograph or the surface or appliqué materials themselves. While applying the textiles, a meaningful composition will start to take shape

No prior experience is neccesary.
