What You'll Get
Bring gorgeous blues to life with this unique experience with local renowned textile artist Helena Geiger!
Helena will start by introducing the technique, tips and tricks on how to replicate this craft at home. Helena will also demonstrate different methods and what can be achieved - all while the vat is getting ready. This will give everyone time and inspiration for the pieces they will want to make. You will then move on to practicing what you have just learnt!
You will get 4 50cm square white cotton pieces of fabric to try out different techniques (incl. clamping, using elastic bands, tracing shapes etc). These pieces can then be framed or used for quilting for example or even to make cushion covers.
You will then also get to dye a calico bag and a muslin scarf to 'have another go'! And feel free to bring some of your white cotton like a tee-shirt to make some more!!!
Helena Geiger has over 20 years devoted to creating stunning work with textile design. Her work with galleries, interior designers, furnishing and fashion retailers and cultural organisations has earned her a stellar reputation for unique, varied and functional fabric craftsmanship.
