3d Mixed Media Tryptch – Machine Embroidery
with Alexandra Waylett
Join us for two days with Alexander Waylett learning how to create fabulous 3d art using a variety of textured layers.
You will spend the first day working with Koh i noor inks and various other paints and metallic wax to produce a textural background with lens tissue, papers and string before on the second day stitching into your designs using your floral pictures as a design source. You will be taken through a series of steps to create the triptych using sheers and stitch to link all the pieces. On the second day I will show you how to create 3d elements to add to your piece – ie flower heads and leaves using water soluble in a hoop.
A variety of paint brushes to inc an old one inch one for gluing as well as more finer one for detail. Bring what you have.
A koh i noor palette – £6 on the day if you would like one let me know.
Lumiere paints or metallic acrylics if you have them. (Lumiere starter pack with the turquoise in is ideal if you want to splash out)
A3 Sketchbook/ A3 piece of paper (two A4 together with tape is fine and hb pencil – this is just for an initial sketch).
Treasure gold /Pebeo gold rub on (in brass) or rub ons if you have some. (I bring mine)
A heat gun – if you have one, or a hair dryer as its purely for drying work
A soldering tool – only if you have one. I will bring two.
A4 pics of your chosen flowers with backgrounds. Long stemmed flowers are a good choice as you will be using string to suggest the stems and scrim for foliage. Bring a choice of pics of your flowers at different angles and we will choose on the day if unsure. Country living mag is always a good source or google images! Send me pics if you are unsure. Please bring pics or the real thing rather than referring to an image on your phone! We will be studying the flowers, colours etc so the more reference material the better.

Covid Postponement and Refunds
Here at Eau Brink Studio we want to ensure everyone who is booked onto one of our workshops is kept safe and we will follow the governments advice on educational workshops.
If government advice means face-to-face workshops cannot continue due to coronavirus (COVID-19), classes will be rescheduled to another date where possible.
Where this is the case, and you cannot attend the new workshop on the new date refunds will be provided.
If you have used paypal or card payments the companies take their fees out of refunds. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about this as they take their cut before they pay anything out.
