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.
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.
