Storybook Paper Dresses - a one day Workshop with Jennifer Collier
Saturday 22nd February 2020
10am - 4pm.
We are SO lucky to have the brilliant Jennifer Collier coming to teach at the HSA, she's a much sought-after artist, always incredibly busy and on top of that, she really does live quite a way away, so this is a real treat! Jennifer will reveal her secrets and let you in on a range of traditional hand & machine stitch techniques she employs to create her paper masterpieces. In the Workshop you'll be looking at Paper Patchwork, Pleating, Paper Pockets, Button Loops, Covered Buttons and Covered Bindings and she'll make it look easy!
Once you feel confident with these skills, you'll be moving on to the exciting step of creating your own small paper dress.
The great news is that you don't have to be amazing with a sewing machine (phew) - some of the work will need some machining (sewing machines provided) but it's nothing too serious. So don't panic if it's been a long time since you sat down at one!
All of Jennifer's Workshops are completely accessible and non-threatening and all teach a simple range of hand and machine techniques so people can pick the bits they want to do and leave out the parts they don't. You can even bring along your favourite books and papers to incorporate into your work - though other materials will be provided.
Please note, there will not be time to frame our finished pieces on the workshop.
