A New Starting Point

Kim’s most popular workshop!

Discover and develop the redemptive qualities of old newspapers, maps, music and books.

Create fascinating surfaces on which to print and stitch. Using painted Bondaweb/Vliesofix and all manner of sparkle, we will explore the possibilities of layering textures, ending up with exciting surfaces which can be further embellished with print and  stitch.

If ironed onto a firm interfacing these gorgeous pieces of work can be used to make boxes, vessels and brooches.
