Embellished Books Workshop with Annette Emms Saturday 11th May 2019
Create an embellished book with Annette Emms! Your book will have soft fabric covers and pages. The effect is achieved by using lots of dyed scrim, felt and old recycled/washed fabrics, and lots of imagination! Our 'story' can be told using needle felting, hand stitching and applique. The illustrations can be embroidered or painted on Fabric, paper and/or organza using a simple technique.
