City and Guilds Study Day

Students had a play at three different activities.  They spent the morning folding, stitching and furrowing to create folded fabric roses.

Then we carried on stitching and the students perfected the art of finishing an edge with their own double fold  bias binding with mitred corners and a bias seam finish!

Then they looked at decorative reverse binding and faced binding, and also how to mitre the corners when the backing fabric is brought forward to create a binding.

After lots of stitching there was just time to have a quick play with Thermofax screens using thickened Procion dye and  print paste.
