Marking with Intent

Catherine McDonald
Date: 28th Oct 2018
Venue: Hophepa 23 Barrington Street

Cost $30 plus kit fee payable to Catherine of $25

Kit includes 1/2 metre fabric plus paint

Take a piece of fabric with some movement in it (generally hand dyed or painted but a commercial fabric could be used), if necessary add some shapes with paint, then through a mix of machine and hand stitch, create your own original work.

A fun day where the fabric leads you easily through your design.
