Hello and welcome to my workshop blog.

10am - 4pm
with Viv Sliwka
 Held in a class room, in the stunning grounds of

We will explore textile and paper collaging
to make decorative brooches.

Emphasis will be placed on playing with surface texture, layering, trapping and decoration.

We will also apply simple hand embroidery techniques to the pieces.
Some materials will be supplied, but please bring along your own stash, to help personalise your work.
A suggestion list will be sent to you on booking.
I am hoping that the day will be a happy, relaxed, enjoyable meeting of the like minded.
An inspirational day of playing and making.

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day, with afternoon cake.
