Take home a gel-plate-printed coaster, and fabric squares.

Spend a happy hour creating ‘nature inspired’ prints on fabric and
paper using a gel-plate.

You will be able to take home printed fabric squares, which once ironed, will be fixed, colourfast and permanent to use in your own projects.

Also turn one into a coaster to take away! Kate will guide you through the different techniques and you will be surprised how even the least confident students are able to produce amazing results. Suitable for all ages and abilities (children with an adult please).
No artistic ability needed! Aprons and gloves provided.

In this fun and easy workshop you will learn how to create a beautiful marbled piece of fabric using fabric paint, which we will turn into a simple folded book cover (Japanese style).

in your own projects.

practise and see just how simple it is to create amazing results. Please note: dyed items will need to ‘rest’ for 24 hours prior to rinsing. Once washed, they are then fixed.

The Quilters' Guild AGM, Torquay
31 March  - 2 April 2017
This is a members only affair - but apparently it's really easy to
​join anytime!

I shall be teaching gel-plate printing on paper and fabric - it's a technique that really suits quilters as you are able to print smallish squares, which once ironed, are soft, colourfast and washable.

It's SO easy to mix your colours to complement others squares; and each print is individual so that the fabric in your quilt is unique!
