About the workshop
This workshop runs from 10am – 4pm
Having items in the house that have been personally created brings about a sense of joy and pride. This course guides you in stencil printing botanical patterns on fabric and paper, focusing on decorating a pre-made cushion cover.
Working with Melanie’s own stencil designs inspired by her love of gardens and the Dorset countryside, the workshop is perfect for both complete beginners and those who may have used stencils before. Her creative yet methodical teaching style, and inspiring approach to hand printing, will send you home with a unique cushion to take pride of place in your home.
With plenty of practice time, you'll master fundamental stenciling techniques, layering design shapes for beautiful effects, and how to fix the paint to ensure the cover is hand-washable.
Pre-mixed fabric paints in nature-inspired colours are provided. A set of Cow Parsley stencils and brushes, to the value of £20, are yours to use during the workshop and to take home at the end of the event.
By the end of the day, you will have a beautifully decorated cushion plus the knowledge & confidence to continue with this fun method of decoration on paper, fabric and even wood…
the opportunities for projects are endless!
