Recycle, Reuse and Stitch

October 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


                                                         Recycle, Reuse and Stitch


For this workshop you will be using wet wipes that have originally used to mop up paint or dyes. These make lovely backgrounds for all types of needle work.

We have a good supply of these at Eau Brink but you can bring your own if you prefer.

We will be looking specifically at making a hanging and you will be offered different examples and techniques to choose from.

Firstly you will need to decide on how your going to hang your piece. You will get to choose from a wide variety of embellishments  and then your ready to stich.

Whist choosing your backgrounds you will be encouraged to look into the wet wipe to see your landscape or picture. Help will be given with this part of the workshop as well as with the sewing.

You can use hand or machine stitch as you choose so bring your sewing kit and sewing machine if you need it.

All materials are supplied but do feel free to bring extra threads, beads etc should you have some favourites you might like to use. A wide selection of threads and embellishments will be available for you to choose from.
