What to expect

Using the 'mola' or reverse appliqué technique, layer fabrics over a base of fine metal, machine stitch (free or with the feed dogs up) your design and then cut back through the layers to reveal colours we have hidden and finally the metal layer at the bottom. Complete the piece with more surface decoration techniques and you have a piece which could be used at both a large, bold scale and a very small, delicate one This will lead us to create a deceptively simple piece and stitch into metal without the accompanying worries about getting metal under your sewing machine for the first time. I will provide sample designs or you can create your own. Whatever your experience level, this course will be suitable for you. I will demonstrate and lead each stage to ensure you are confident about the techniques and will leave with a lovely artwork.
