Japanese textiles with Chris Hammacott
In this course you will learn a wide range of Japanese textiles techniques through quick projects including: a Sashiko cushion using an easy big stitch technique that’s both restful and very quick; an Omiage bag, again an easy technique that looks very impressive!; a stunning ‘Moon over the water’ wall-hanging using strip fabric and a touch of appliqué; and to end the course we will have a session of Shibori which is the ancient resist dyeing style we will bring up to date using a microwave!
You don’t need to have previous experience just a willingness to have a go and enjoy yourself. Materials will be supplied for the first lesson and a list will be provided for (easy to obtain) materials required for the rest of the sessions.
