Have you been on the eco printing course and generated a pile of samples and are now wondering what to do with them? Rather than leave them lying forgotten in a drawer why don’t you join me for a day of stitching where we can turn them into something decorative or functional.

    

A fabulous day today using Spring leaves on paper and fabric, everyone achieved brilliant results with what is sometimes a difficult time of the year… some of the leaves we hoped for were still not out because of this recent cold snap… hopefully they will be out for the masterclass in May
