Winchester Embroiderers' Guild welcomes contemporary and traditional textile artists, embroiderers and craft enthusiasts

November 2016 at Dovetail Centre, Bar End, Winchester.

Twelve Guild members enjoyed a fabulous workshop last week with Alison Hulme. She had a huge range of thermofax stencils to use to screen print designs on fabric and a vast assortment of stencils and stamps for printing. Pots of colour (acrylic paint with textile medium) were available to mix up your own colour palette as well as mark-making tools to use on geli plates.

Alison was very generous in sharing her expertise with the group and by the end of the day everyone had produced some beautiful pieces of unique printed fabric, which could be be used directly or embellished further with embroidery. Thanks go to Jennifer and Judith, the helpers - the arrangements for washing screen worked very well.
