Let’s Explore – Layers and Scraps

April 16 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Layers and scraps… and holes… the basis of exploratory textile work. What can we discover today?

Let’s try using organza, netting, tissue paper, tracing paper or gauze to create layers. Get out those scraps and create a background for a new piece of work. You could even swap some of those scraps with other people!

Feel free to work on your own projects if you prefer.


Stitching and Beyond member, Heather, will guide us in our layering adventures. Check out some of Heather’s work.

  • All the usual sewing gear, scissors, needles, threads etc
  • Sheer fabrics e.g. coloured and plain organza, gauze, coloured and plain lutradur
