Monoprinting for stitch is a fun workshop to learn some easy textile art skills. It's aimed at patchworkers, quilters and aspiring textile artists and crafters. If you've not tried Mono-printing, then you'll not know what you're missing. But take it from me, it's a whole heap of fun and it's much easier than it looks. It's a great way of creating your own designs to inspire embroidery and collage. So if you like quilting, patchwork or any form of fabric craft, then why not give it a go? It's also a really quick way of creating decorative papers for cardmaking.

What will I learn?
- how to make your own mark-making tools and printing blocks using everyday items.
- use of 'found' objects from nature, such as feathers and leaves. -various mono-printing techniques to create positive and negative prints
- how colour, pattern and texture can inspire stitch.
-how to combine your prints to create a stitched collage. You can use hand or machine embroidery to further embellish your work.

You could piece your fabrics together to produce a totally unique cushion, bag or wallhanging/quilt. This class will free you from having to buy commercial printed fabrics. It will add a whole new dimension to your work. It's the easiest way to learn how to design your own unique artworks.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Monoprinting for Stitch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
