Outcome
Explore and create a project

Use tea bags to create a fabulous textile art piece. You will try out various quick and fun methods including trapping, waxing, printing and gilding. Then combine these with stitching, beading, and a few found objects to create a unique panel. The results have the feel of a refined bygone era with the translucency of fine ‘pojaki’ patchwork and a modern twist.
This class is designed for hand stitching though if you wish to machine you can.
