"Discover the peace of crafting simply for the joy of it and learn to look at your scraps differently with Anna on this introductory scrapcrafting course. You’ll enjoy an inspirational collection of remnant materials - textiles, papers, haberdashery, fibres, lace... reclaimed, vintage, luxe, surprising... always beautiful and always interesting.
Craft or art experience is not needed but very welcome. Whether you've never put thread to needle, or are a skilled crafter already, this is a no-rules creativity that focuses more on process and experience than results. Take time for yourself, get lost rummaging in a basket of gorgeous scraps, let go of expectations and embrace the opportunity to play with colours & textures.
While products are secondary to the making here, nobody goes home empty handed. The course will shape around participants and include mini projects such as textile feather making, 'scrapstack' tiny artworks & embellishments, snippet patches, layered textile art, handstitched experiments, mark-making and collage."
