This workshop shows you how to draw with your sewing machine to create a range of colourful and textural effects.

You will:

  • Understand how to prepare fabrics and a sewing machine for free
    machining.
  • Experiment with different ways to add colour to your images: threads, paints, appliqué, whip stitch, cording, couching and cutwork.
  • Study a range of samples and observe a number of demonstrations for inspiration and understanding.
  • Study contemporary artists’ work that links to the techniques covered.
  • Understand health and safety issues when free machining.
  • Receive a set of handouts to support your day’s learning.
  • You may use one of my Bernina sewing machines for the day, or bring your own (as long as it has the facility to do free machining, i.e. drop the feed dog).
