Is it Paper? Is it fabric? Sometimes it's neither. Contemporary embroidery has banished all the traditional methods and constrictions about what you can and can't do. I often include substances such as paper, plastic and metal in my mixed-media textile art.

This unusual mixed-media textile workshop will teach you how to create stitchable surfaces from paper and other non-conventional materials. You probably have many of them lying about the house. Learn how to create colour and pattern, decorate with stitch (hand or machine). Paper Fabric can be used as a background for a piece of wall art, for cardmaking, a book or tablet cover, or even a zipped pouch.

No drawing experience is required. Free-motion embroidery experience would be an advantage but is not essential.

The tutor, Jen, is a degree-trained textile artist/designer and is a member of the Embroiderers Guild.

Artisan Stitch has won a certificate of excellence and is rated best sewing classes in Edinburgh.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paper Fabric: Make a book cover are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
