Caroline Higgs – Cut and Stitch
 
Caroline Higgs workshop Cut and StitchStudents will learn how to use a “commercial” stencil to create something personal. They will learn to be selective and use texture to help with the contrast between the two layers. Hand stitching will be used to enhance the design. The idea is to get started on a project which can be finished at home; it will be post-card size and could make a nifty card-holder. Colours and designs may vary from those in the photo. Suitable for all levels.

 

 

 


Caroline Higgs – Colour and Stitch
 
Caroline Higgs workshop Colour and StitchThe idea is to work with a “commercial” stencil to create something easy and unique using colour and stitch. During the workshop students will learn how to colour their fabric and then use hand stitching for additional detail and texture. This will be a project to finish at home having learned the basics during the class. The finished post-card size piece could be made into a needle-case or used as part of a larger project. Suitable for all levels. Choice of colour is up to the individual students, designs may vary from those in the photo.

 

 

 


Caroline Higgs – Indian embroidery
 
Caroline Higgs workshop Indian embroideryThis is an introduction to traditional Indian Sunjani embroidery. Students will learn how in this part of India they embroider their everyday life stories, and they will then start a small project using these traditional techniques. The project can be finished at home and made into a soft spectacles case. In the class you will be using hand sewing techniques; threads and fabric will be provided, the case can be hand-or machine stitched at home. Thread colours and design shapes may vary from those in the photograph. Suitable for all levels.

We will start at the top, and will work downwards, and we will cut layers one by one. All of the seams will be attached by hand. When the Mola is complete, you can transform it into a make-up bag if you would like to. All materials will be included.

Hilde van Schaardenburg – Teaser course quilt judging
 
Hilde van Schaardenburg workshopWhat is needed to be able to judge textile (art) works – such as quilts, woven or felted objects, pieces of lace or knitting work – objectively, and without letting prejudice or personal taste get in the way? The answer is: knowledge and practice! During this so-called teaser course you will develop those skills that play a role in both jurying and judging. Jurying is about evaluation at the computer; judging pertains to the evaluation of the actual work. The participants will work in small groups in order to experience first-hand what judging is all about. You will work with forms to give a judgment on both design and technique. These forms are also used in real competitions for judging. The course offers a captivating and inspiring experience, where you will learn to look at art works more objectively and with more nuance. The course leader is Hilde van Schaardenburg who successfully completed the Quilt Judging Course between 2011-2013. This two-year demanding course is organised by The Quilters’ Guild of The British Isles. Until now there is no comparable course in Europe. Although the course was developed in the quilt environment, the system is such that it can be applied to all forms of textile artwork.

 


Isabelle Wiessler – Autumn leaves
 
I.Wiessler, Autumn leaves workshopWe will make leaves out of nylon organza snippet and then stitch them in a nice form in free embroidery. Then they will be zapped with an embossing tool, as you want them to look like. You can use this method for all kinds of shapes, like mussels and trees for example. Making this, is a lot of fun – Just wait and see!

 

 

 
 


Isabelle Wiessler – Autumn leaves
 
I.Wiessler Color to lightThis theme was an inspiration and question for many artists: How does light emerge out of a piece and how can colors help that effect? How do colors react with each other and how do they influence each other. This was my personal challenge; one in which I worked with textile materials to achieve. In some pieces I use hand-died fabrics, which are then colored with acrylic paint, and in others compositions are created with light, colorful, and sheer materials.

 

 

 
 


Tamara Schultz – Art quilt sampler-Notebook cover
 
Tamara Schultz Art Quilt Sampler Notebook CoverStudents will hand-quilt together a small “sandwich” of fabric and batting, adding a small piece of a synthetic tulle or net as they sew. Then participants will get to try out using a reactive foil with a fusible fabric, melting parts of the synthetic tulle or net with a heat gun, and then overpainting the quilted piece by rolling on acrylic paint. Students will also receive direction on how to sew this quilt into a cover for an A6 notebook.
 

 

 
 


Tamara Schultz – Archeology needle book
 
Tamara Schultz Archeology Needle BookIn this workshop students will baste string and/or other flat objects to layers of batting and then “bury” them by stitching a layer of fabric over the top. Students will then add more quilting to the piece and highlight the buried objects using Decolourant, an easy to use, heat-activated, colour remover. This small block is then sewn together along with felt into a unique needle book.

 

 

 
 


Tamara Schultz – Painted fusible-Card holder
 
Tamara Schultz Painted Fusible Card HolderIn this workshop students will first paint fusible web with water and liquid acrylic paints, and then fuse this piece to muslin. This base will then be painted with stencils and spray fabrics paint. The painted piece will next be layered with thin batting and another fabric, and then cut and sewn into a shape which folds into a small envelope-type card holder. This card holder has 3 pockets, of which two are closable with snaps that we will also attach. The pattern can be adjusted in size at home to be used for many other projects.
