House and Home Textile Art Course

With author, artist & tutor Anne Kelly you will be working from your choice of house or place (building) that hold a special memory for you.

In this one day course we will start by using basic but effective techniques taken from her books.

Anne will show you how to create a mixed media collage using items from your collections and charity shop finds.

Your piece will be embellished and richly decorated to create a special souvenir or gift. It can be added to a larger piece at a later date if desired.

Sewing machines are helpful but not essential. It’s helpful if you choose colours that suit your house/building and an image of your house/building to work from before the course.
