Embellished Mandala Textile Art

July 27 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

During this workshop, embroidery artist Jessica Grady will teach you a selection of her contemporary and colourful mixed media embroidery and embellishment techniques to create your own unique mandala design. Techniques will include metallic fabric sequins, painted metal washers and hand dyed DIY materials – repurposed as brightly coloured embellishments. These embellishments will be stitched onto layered fabric backgrounds and then laced onto foam board for you to frame up. All materials are included, so all you have to bring along is yourself!

Beginners to embroidery are also very welcome – Jessica will run through all techniques and processes so that everyone can enjoy the workshop at their own pace and produce a unique design.
