Inspiring Images Requirements List

On September 29th Annette Emms is coming to the Birmingham branch to lead an Image Transfer Day School. After her marvellous gargoyles, ghosts and gravestones session last month, places on the dayschool filled up fast, however some spaces may still be available. If you'd like to book onto the session, please email birminghamembroiderersguild@gmail.com, or see Margaret Richards at a session.


And now, onto the workshop information:



Inspiring Images
 

During this workshop you will learn lots of exciting ways to transfer image and text onto fabric or paper

At the end of the day we will have a small  book containing samples of the different techniques.
