Introduction To Stitchbooking

This is an Introduction to Stitchbooking workshop that aims to give you all of the tools and advice you need to make your own Stitchbook – a textile memory book featuring your photos printed onto fabric.

The course fee includes a Stitchbook Starter Kit  (usually £30) which contains the construction materials for a 11.5 x 15cm Stitchbook with 8 pages. These include the background pages, the binding rings and a selection of stampers so you can add your own story.

During the workshop I will guide you through the main skills needed to produce your Stitchbook including printing your photos onto fabric, adding text and constructing the pages.  

You will have time during the day to try out all of the techniques and make a start on the pages for your own book. Hopefully by the end of the day you will have the confidence and understanding of how to complete the rest of your Stitchbook.

Details:

The cost is £95 this includes the price of the Starter Kit plus any addition materials and equipment you need to use on the day. 

The course runs from 10 – 3.30pm  and will have a half hour break for lunch. 

You need to have a basic level of sewing knowledge -not necessarily on a  sewing machine. The books can be completed by hand or machine.

My studio is quite small so there will be a maximum of 4 participants.    Minimum suitable age is 14.    

After purchase I will email you with a list of suggested supplies to bring along, and instructions on simple preparations you can make, such as thinking of a theme for your book and collecting photographs. 

It will be held at my Hotwalls studio  which is a lovely place to spend the day (more info on my Studio).  There will be a break for lunch and you can bring your own or visit the fantastic onsite Canteen. I will also be providing tea and coffee throughout the day.

There are several parking options such as the Land Rover BAR car park and some on street parking. 

 

Terms and Conditions: 

Payment must be made upon booking. 

Cancellations may be made up to and including the day of participation for a full refund or change onto another course if available. However I would prefer if you could give two weeks notice so I can try to fill the space. 

Workshops will only be held with sufficient participants and I may have to cancel certain sessions if the numbers are not made. If this happens you will be offered an alternative date or have your booking fee completely refunded. I will try and give you two weeks notice of any cancellations although this cannot be guaranteed due to unforseen circumstances such as Covid-19. 

Gift Vouchers may be exchanged for their value against other workshops, or exchanged for equivalent price products from my Etsy or Stitchbook Studio shops.
