About This Course
The Stitchery has teamed up with Glasgow based Textile Designers Bespoke Atelier to offer this truly unique two-day workshop. On the Saturday students will be screen-printing their very own fabrics at Bespoke's studio in The Glue Factory. These wonderful creations shall then be whisked over to The Stitchery on Sunday where students will be instructed on foundational sewing techniques, before using their very own screen-printed fabrics to construct a lovely cushion cover.
The Saturday - Screen Printing at Bespoke Atelier
From the first steps of designing a stencil to he final pull of the squeegee, Bespoke's beginner level fabric workshop will guide you through the beautiful process of screen-printing. Designers and instructors, Marion Parola and Yvonne Elliott, will be on-hand throughout the day to offer you ideas, examples, and tips from their own wealth of experience.
The Sunday - Cushion Making at The Stitchery
Cushion making is addictive, as many of our students have discovered. Once you learn to make one you'll probably go home and make a few more.
This part of the weekend workshop, led by independent Designer Susie Haigh, will cover some basic sewing techniques and also give a practical introduction to the fun filled activity of free motion embroidery. Students will then use these skills to make a cushion cover out of their very own screen-printed fabrics.
