SOLD OUT || Slow Stitch Fabric Collage Journal Cover Workshop

Two parts: Part I – Monday, June 13*, 1-4pm; Part II – Thursday, June 30, 1-4pm

$75 + hst (includes all materials)

This workshop invites you to craft a journal cover that’s entirely your own! Participants will layer vintage fabrics, plant-dyed textiles, lace, buttons, and other notions using free-form embroidery stitches to form a slip-cover for a 5 3/4″ x 8 1/4″, blank-page journal. The finished cover will be a symphony of colour and texture, unique to its maker. The workshop comprises two parts: in the first part, we will establish the framework for the cover and learn layering techniques; after you’ve had two weeks to stitch the cover at home, we’ll gather again to fit the cover to the journal and add finishing details like a pocket and a bookmark. This cover is portable, so once you’ve filled your journal with sketches or notes you can remove it and insert a new one into the cover! This class is suitable for beginner and more advanced sewists alike, inviting a playful approach to the art of embellishment.
