The main emphasis of the workshop is to encourage students to

develop their own ideas - with help readily available. Working

directly with the fabric, Janet explains and demonstrates the simple

sewing techniques required. She will also demonstrate the exciting

process of cutting shapes, rearranging and sewing down the various

elements until a pleasing composition has been achieved.

Illustrated Talk

Bringing images to show and a good selection of actual pieces of work, Janet

tells of her own experiences, development and influences. Questions

are invited during the illustrated talk on working methods.
