‘Chill Time’ – Viv Denscombe -
One quick pull of the pattern, then sit, relax, hand stitch and bead. I have designed and will bring my Thermofax screen and paint for you to create an original quick pattern that just calls out for hand stitch and beads. ( to be developed into a small pikki. )

The workshop will involve:-
1. Produce some basic designs from pictures of flowers - close up images of flowers so they look like landscapes.
2. Dying a range of silk fabrics to achieve tonal changes.
3. Select and cut out flower areas once silk is dry.
4. Then if time allows add extra stitching to add more tones.
We may or may not get all that complete - but it will allow for added detail later once workshop is over.
