DATE & DETAILS
Saturday 24th February 2.00 - 5.00
Go wild with design, applique, stitch and textile at this mixed media workshop with Jennie Braid Lamb.
Jennie will help you create iron on patches that can be applied to clothing, bags, your favourite denim etc.
You will design your own patch and transfer it to material ready for hand stitching etc.
This is a really great way to upcycle a tired pair of jeans or repair a much loved jacket (not required for the class)
Kits will be provided for each student and will include an embroidery hoop, interface, fabrics, threads, needles and all you need to create your own unique patch.
All you need to bring is a pair of scissors and a sense of fun
Suitable for age 14 upwards.
No previous embroidery skills required.
Kit Fee £10 payable to Jennie in class
ABOUT YOUR TUTOR
Jennie’s passion for textile and mixed media started whilst she was at sixth form college in the 1980’s when Punk and New Romantic design was front and centre of her world. Circumstances led to her in a different direction and she had a career in Make Up Design; but her interest was kept alive through designing and creating tapestry and colourful crochet blankets .
Over the last few years her passion for textiles has been rediscovered via community projects she has led in her home village Appledore, Devon.
2020/21 saw the production and coordination of a 16ft Crochet Christmas tree with the help of the community knitters and crocheters. 2021/22 saw the construction of a mixed media Under the Sea Installation and this year Jennie is co ordinationg a large mixed media banner recording the social history of Appledore for future generations.
When she is not doing that she is stitching brooches, badges and upcycling denim with her own original designs.
She loves to teach and lead community projects and takes great joy from the pleasure it brings others.
