Create your own textured textile collar.
Fran will demonstrate how to cut out and construct a simple collar pattern in a variety of styles- the perfect basis for Emily to mix dyeing and experimental “drawing” to create beautiful mark making patterns.
Drawing on surface pattern and texture as inspiration, Fran and Emily will then show you a range of hand stitch and free machine embroidery techniques to decorate and embellish your fabric before constructing your wonderfully tactile textile collar.

(All material provided but Please note we will only have a few sewing machines available so if possible please bring your own )

Perfect for all abilities.

Non refundable full payment required at time of booking. If the day is cancelled by Emily & Fran a full refund will be issued.

There is a cafe on site or you can bring your own lunch.
