Genesis Textile Workshops

Genesis Textile Group have some places available on two of their workshops this autumn:

12th Oct 2013 Claire Muir – ‘Fabulous Flowers’
This course about making flowers by free machine embroidering individual petals onto a soluble fabric. Sumptuous fabrics will be couched down onto the petals before supporting wires are added. Bead and crystal embellishments and wire and feather centres finish off each creation. Students will learn how to make embroidered lace flowers and should complete a flower which they can wear as a corsage or in their hair. Students should be confident and experienced in using the sewing machine for machine embroidery.
