In this workshop participants play with thickened lemon juice with stencils, masks, screens and on it's own.  As the images do not appear until heat is applied with an iron or heat gun, there are always surprises! Kits will be provided for each participant. Details upon booking.

Introduction to Design

How did I get from a photo of a piece of antique printed linen to the stitched bird?  That is the adventure and fun you will experience in creating your own designs. This introductory course will teach several methods which can be used over and over again to create your own designs from any source of inspiration. Students create a minimum of 14 original designs. This workshop is available on-line or in person. Email me at for details.
