Silk Paper Making and Fused Fibres Workshop

This inspiring workshop introduces you to two processes:- Silk paper making and Fusing Fibres.

Silk paper making

You will create silk papers by fusing silk cocoon fibres and Tussah silk filaments together with other natural and man-made materials. These include skeleton leaves, dried petals, fragments of paper, metallic fibres, and lace .

With the support of a stabilising fabric on the underside of the silk paper to provide extra strength and durability you will use *‘free machine embroidery’ to develop your delicate silk paper.

Fused fibres

You will also create fabrics made by blending and fusing iridescent fibres together by ironing.

The iridescent fibres provide  intense colour, a high lustre and a glossy sheen to the fabrics.

As above you have the opportunity to *machine stitch or hand sew onto the fused fabrics.

PRICE: £45 includes all materials.

*Own sewing machine essential, further information when booking.
