WORKSHOP - 'BURNING ISSUES' with Margaret Beale

11 November  2006

Margaret brought along the original work which illustrates her new book "Fusing Fabric" published by Batsford. This provided great inspiration for the workshop members..

The group made samples using a very fine tipped soldering iron to cut, bond and seal nylon organza.

.... to produce a "new" fabric. Margaret showed us how to use the iron to cut out shapes, make borders and form ribbons

...  and how to make marks by laying the organza on synthetic felt before scoring or making holes.

We produced some interesting work and were sorry when the time came to clear up - a really fun day!
