I'm really looking forward to the three fabric stamping workshops I am going to be holding at my friend Wendy's workshop in the North Laines of Brighton. Wendy has a lovely workshop where she holds her award winning sewing classes. She has very kindly let me hold some workshops in her lovely space.

Here is some information the fabric stamping classes I will be teaching.

Join Nula Shearing for a fabric stamping workshop where we will be stamping on your choice of a tote bag, a tea towel or a square of fabric suitable to be made into a cushion cover. Nula will bring a variety of her stamp designs featuring geometric shapes, a decorative hare design, and some simple flowers.

Nula will take you through the simple steps of inking up the stamp correctly for printing on fabric and how achieve a crisp strong stamped image on fabric. Nula will advise on combining colours together for grey effect, and to match your home decor. There will be lots of stamped samples for you to look at and have a go at recreating for yourself.

Suitable for absolute beginners – no sewing involved!

  • There is a choice of 3 Sunday workshops: 10.30am-12.30pm: 11th September | 2nd October | 16th October.
  • Cost: £40 (including materials)

Landscape and Running Hare Cushion

19 June, 2016

This was a fun experiment . I had a go at making a really big stamp of the snowscape stamp, then i inked it up using some more springlike shades. I stamped the large stamp by putting it face down on the fabric then staining on it, and ahem.. thanks to my not inconsiderable weight I got a great stamped impression. The hare was stamped on afterwards. Then I sketched some pencil lines for the flower stems, then sewed over the pencil lines using a narrow zigzag and dark grey cotton. The flower head and leaf stamps I made from enlarged flower silhouette stamps. I then stamped these along the sewn lines and voila!!

I am looking forward to teaching all these tecniques at Abigail's Drapery in Lewes at the cushion stamping workshops I will be running there, places are still available, email me for course dates (it is £25.00) per 1-2hour workshop.

Circle Flowers Stamped Cushion

16 June, 2016

This cushion was stamped using a variety of flower and circle stamps using some lovely bright colours. These stamps were not all mounted on perspex so they did not all line up perfectly but this kind of adds to the charm, I hope !!!
