2 Day Workshop
In Naturally-Dyed Shibori Silk Jewellery, Cathy Moon invites you to discover how to make stunning jewellery pieces using naturally dyed Shibori. Traditional Shibori techniques will be used to create three dimensional forms that can be fashioned into sculptural wearables. Earrings, necklaces and arm cuffs will be made over the two days. There is also the option to further embellish your creations with beading.
A great two days of fun for all levels of experience.
Natural Indigo and Naturally-dyed Silk Scarves is a stand-alone workshop just for you. Cathy will have the indigo pot on and ready for your shibori treats to be dip-dyed into your own unique silk scarf. How wonderful!

Collage is a technique I have used for many years to create an intricate surface on my felts. They are rich in shading and texture.
With the addition of many fibres and fabrics we will create at least 2 wall hangings that can be enhanced with stitch and appliqué.
You may decide to turn yours into a bag or cushions or as an addition to a garment.
Collage felts provide the perfect opportunity to utilise all those little snippets and odd little leftovers that don’t seem at all useful, but really come into their own in these works.
You know those lovely tiny treasures that you can’t bear to throw out? Collage them – definitely Collage them!
Hoping to see you in class!……………………………….
