2018 HANDMADE & HEARTFELT WORKSHOP

April 12, 13, 14, 2018   
SALLY KORTE & ALI STREBEL

Come join us for our creative – cooperative – cool workshop.  The workshop format is designed with the goal that each participant feels they have made their own one-of-a-kind creation.

We plan and present the project followed by instruction, sharing, small group demonstrations and discussion. 

Success for all comes with your individual interpretation of our inspiration.  To that end you employ your personal color choices, embellishment techniques, etc.  The workshop atmosphere is one of warm support – certainly fun – and shared learning.

Our HANDMADE & HEARTFELT WORKSHOP includes :

-          A Wine & Nibbles Welcome Reception

-          Three Days of Classroom Instruction

-          An Evening Get-Together for Dessert & Work Time

-          Morning Tea, Lunch and Snacks

2018 WORKSHOP PROJECT

BESPOKE FABRIC – TOTE BAG

BESPOKE FABRIC –  Ready for something really different this year?  We are presenting a technique for transforming a base fabric using permanent fabric pencils/color wash…effectively designing your own fabric.  After walking you through the process you make one or more small self-designed fabric pieces.  Adding embroidery and other embellishment work further enhances your bespoke fabric.

TOTE BAG {8 ½ x 10 ½ x 3} –  Your bespoke pieces of fabric will then be used as part of a hand stitched tote bag.  The tote bag will have a stable framework and leather handles.

Fabric pencils, stabilizer fabric, leather straps and wool fabric for color base will be provided as part of the workshop fee.

   

OPTIONAL PURCHASES

TIN  PIN CUSHION KIT :  We asked our ‘tin man’ to design a weathered looking tube that we could close with a cork.  The tin tube is meant to hold needles and pins.  Next we encircled the center of the tube with a fabric ‘cushion.’  The result is a quite fun and unique tin-pin cushion

                                                                                                                        Cost : $18

POTTERY VASE & FUN WOOL FLOWER KIT : Every year, in some way, we include pottery in our workshop.  This year we commissioned a small pottery vase that you will fill with these unique, fun flowers.  Each flower is constructed of wool, beads, and wire.  Embroidery embellishment completes each flower.

                                                                                                                        Cost : $18
