Textile Applique and Stitch Workshop : Layered Landscapes with Susan D’souza

Textile Applique and Stitch Workshop : Layered Landscapes


with Textile Artist & Teacher Susan D’souza

Thursday 3rd June 10.00am-3.00pm



Using inspiration from the beautiful landscape views at Sussex Prairie Gardens learn how to abstract and simplify complex shapes and visual information by creating layered fabric ‘collage’ using applique and reverse applique techniques. We will then go on to add texture and detail using hand and /or machine stitch.   No previous textile experience necessary but the opportunity for experienced textile practitioners to extend their skills.


1 day workshop total cost £70 per person including materials


Please contact Susan D’souza for more information or to secure a place or 07786613309
