KHF-39 Sew a Postcard
Skill level: All levels welcome
Kit cost: $30 00 (payable to tutor)
This is a project driven, one-day workshop, in which you will create your own fabric and thread post card. You can choose to trace your image from a selection of drawings that I have done of Australian fauna and flora (available in a kit), or you can draw your own. After translating this drawing onto your pre-printed “Post Card”, you will learn how to flesh it out using a choice of netting, snippets of fabric and variously coloured sewing threads.
Once your image is stitched onto your canvas and dressed in all its bits and pieces of fabric, you will stitch your lines and message, sign your name and then add the various “stamps” or any other preferred postal instructions.
Perhaps your piece needs to come with instructions to “Handle with Care” or must be held “This Way Up”.
You may also choose to paint a background around your chosen subject before stitching the fully completed post card face to its own particular backing material.
(A set of Inktense colour blocks will be made available for students to use for this purpose).
