This workshop is inspired by Mary Fedden paintings of jugs of flowers on windowsills and tables. Using appliqué and/or embroidery Caroline will help you to create an image of a jug of flowers standing on a table in front of a window. You can either work with hand embroidery only, or use a machine for some of the appliqué work. You may want to try using paint to suggest sky and fields beyond, and perhaps create a miniature patchwork tablecloth, quilted and embroidered, for the jug to stand on.
As with all Caroline’s workshops, she will show examples of her work, present the materials and help you to realise your interpretation of the theme. Whether you are a complete beginner or more experienced, you will enjoy rummaging through Caroline’s collection of precious vintage fabric and threads to choose what you need for your picture. You might not finish the picture on the day, but you will go home knowing exactly what you have to do to complete the project.
This workshop will be held in a beautiful private home in Chadlington, Oxfordshire where you will work in a comfortable, light-filled garden room. The workshop fee of £170 includes all materials, morning coffee on arrival, a light two-course lunch and afternoon tea at the end of the day. When you book you will be sent details of how to get to the venue, as well as a short list of useful equipment to bring.
Saturday 8th April 2017, 10.30 - 4.30, £170 per person includes materials, food and refreshments throughout the day.
