Sewing Machine Confidence

Detail of sewing machine and sewing accessories.

Many of us know who to use our sewing machines for straight sewing.

Sewing Machine Confidence will show you that that they can do so much more?

Even the old mechanical machines can do far more than expected. On the 4th Saturday of each month Anita will show you a new skill on your sewing machine.

This is not a dressmaking course.

You will build a book of samples and add your own notes with the help of Anita to ensure you are able to dip into the sampler book at any time and still be able to complete the task at hand.

In the morning Anita will demonstrate a new technique for you to practice and in the afternoon you can use this technique to make a small object.

Every Month will be a different technique so you can dip in and out when you fancy it.

Here at Eau Brink Studio we are Springing into Life with the the arrival of the lambs, chicks and ducklings. The place is absolutely buzzing with bees from the hives starting to build their nests for the foraging season.

The bees are not the only ones buzzing either. We have had Cas Holmes here for two days teaching her fabulous workshop “Small Objects of Desire”. This workshop was over two days where we worked onto and into commercial canvas. The results were stunning as you can see. Everybody enjoyed the workshop and the new techniques we learnt. I particularly loved the idea of working into a canvas using a sewing machine.  I will definitely be working this way again and again.

 

Over at the Barn we also have been busy with the children’s workshops making wands using Powertex. Great fun and messy. I was taken aback though when a two year old wanted to join in. She did do a great job.

 

The next Workshop at Eau Brink Studio is the 1st  of May Experimental Wednesday. If you would like to join us do get in touch and I can explain what we will be working on.

Finding your feet with Pauline Wrighton has only four spaces left so do not leave it too long to book. This exciting workshop will get you using your sewing machine to its full potential.

There are many ways to learn how to add colour, and line to paper and fabrics. There are also many ways to create fabulous crafts and we can help inspire your younger ones to be creative and inventive.

Experimental Wednesday at Eau Brink Studio is a day where your children can be free to experiment using any medium they like. We have put paper to fabric, made paper, dyed fabrics and used the left over dye as ink. 

We look around us and think about what everyday objects can be used for in our experimenting. for example: take some rusty objects and lay them over and around fabric. Leave for  a few weeks and then unwrap. Lovely rust dyed fabrics to sew into. works on paper too.

The world around us makes many synthetic fabrics which can be coloured and then heated to make the most fantastic surfaces. Such as Tyvek, Lutradour, and of course everyday plastics.

Every Wednesday from 10am till 2pm. From £20.00 per day and then additional costs for materials. Refreshments included but not lunch.
