Using various silk fabrics and folding techniques it is easy to produce stunning designs that are always a surprise.

All techniques will be demonstrated as well as using the microwave, and at the end of the day each student will be able to choose their favourite method to dye a unique and personal scarf to take away.

Bristol Branch’s Annual Skills Taster Day

will be held at Scrapstore in Bristol ( Children’s Scrapstore, Scrapstore House, 21 Sevier Street, Bristol BS2 9LB) from 10-4 on Saturday October 21st. There is plenty of parking at scrapstore at the weekend, and also street parking.

This is a member led workshop and you will have a chance to practice the skills on offer.

The fee is £10 for all participants. People who do not belong to the Guild are also welcome.

I have been to all the previous skill taster days, and they were all great fun. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you get lots of opportunity to chat.

I have attached a booking form

Details and materials required for the day are:

Alexia Gardner – Tamari balls.  Alexia has some thread but if you want a particular colour you will need to bring some of your own.

 Muriel George – Transfer printing.  Muriel has transfer crayons and paper.  You will need to bring some small pieces of white or cream material.  The crayons can be used on cotton, polycotton or other synthetics. Used on cotton they will produce pale shades, polycotton slightly brighter ones and synthetics even brighter. 

 Sue Santi – How to chenille fabric.  Sue has all the materials but you will need to bring a sewing machine.  Attached are a couple of photos that Sue has provided showing the finished fabric
