This workshop covers lots of information and practice on creating your own peaceful 'Riverbank' scene, which incorporates lots of ways to create beautiful reflections using fabrics and threads. Using applique techniques and free motion embroidery you will work to Heidi's template whilst having the freedom to input your own creativity as required.
Heidi will demonstrate each stage and you will have plenty of time to practice before working on your project. Once completed, this design can be framed as a textile artwork or you can incorporate it into another project such as a cushion or quilt.
