This is a two session online workshop.
Find out how to create a unique artist’s book using textiles, stitching, inks and collage.
In session one we start by adhering a patchwork of fabrics and paper ephemera to freezer paper. In the second session the resulting strip of material is peeled off the freezer paper and is ready to be folded into an accordion. This can then be embellished with embroidery, machine sewing, stamping and ink painting. Simple sewing and embroidery techniques will be demonstrated.
The final fold out book will be attached to a textile cover that can also be decorated with these mixed media techniques.
Materials to Bring:
- 2 pieces of freezer paper, one 32”x9” another 16”x10”, Reynolds brand works well. (Freezer paper has a plastic coating, unlike parchment paper, which will allow the patchwork to peel up easily)
- Light-weight fabric scraps and paper ephemera, enough to create an overlapping patchwork approx 32 x 6”. Other materials like lace, ribbon, old book pages, doilies, etc. also work well.
- Embroidery floss and needle
- Adhesive (at least 8oz) such as Liquitex Matte Acrylic Medium or Matte Mod Podge Paper or diluted PVA
- Container with water
- Gluing brush
- Stamps and stamp pads.
- Inks – Higgins, Bombay or similar

- Acrylic inks –Daler Rowney make some nice pearlescent ones
