Weekend Retreat

Texture into Sudoku

sudoku part

Nine ingenious ways to create surface texture and manipulated magic. Create all nine ideas in class and combine to create an amazingly marvellously nipped, tucked, twiddled and fiddled panel with a little added extra embellishment.

These designs can be made from one colour or use a variety of shades.

Batiks/plain coloured/hand-dyed cotton, silk or other natural fabrics with no obvious right/wrong side are a good choice of material.

If desired, pre-wash all materials but use a spray starch when pressing to restore ‘body’.

If using all calico (USA muslin) – it is advisable to select a medium-weight rather than a light-weight weave.

It is appreciated that students prefer to complete or almost complete their class sample and each class is carefully designed so this should be possible.

All classes are suitable for every level of sewing ability.
