Card Making Workshops

with Wendy Teall

Make your own special, personalised and unique greetings cards for any occasion.

A gift of a handmade card says ‘I value you’ so much more than a shop-bought card, and is a wonderful way to share your talents and imagination as a creative crafter.

We will be using simple techniques such as cut and torn paper collage, off-loom weaving, stitching on paper, and using palm punches.

Stitching on paper makes for unusual and effective cards, and is also a relaxing, enjoyable technique to try out. With just a little know-how and some easy-to-follow designs, you too can create beautiful hand-stitched cards. Come and learn how in this short workshop, with all materials provided.

Why do we keep all those odd bits of things that clutter up our sewing baskets? I have bits of lace, elastic, scraps of fabric buttons, beads, bits of broken jewellery and lots more.Some things are old treasures, some of it is just rubbish.Lets collage and stitch our favorite bits to make a lovely hanging so that our treasured keepsakes will be on display for us to enjoy. Join me in this workshop. Bring your own materials, and/or choose from those provided, to collage fabrics and papers together and then decorate and embellish our backgrounds with stitching and beading.
