18th October 2012 "Creative with Strip Cloth" Workshop with Magie Relph

For centuries, all over West Africa, people have spun cotton and woven it into long, narrow strips, before sewing the strips together to create whole wearing cloths, blankets and traditional garments.
We'll start with plain undyed, as well as indigo patterned strip cloth, then experiment with a variety of patterning, appliqué, stitching and embellishing techniques to make a small wall-hanging, bag or book cover. 

 Get Creative with Strip cloth requirements

I’ll bring along strip cloth for you to use.
Other materials needed would be

· Embroidery threads, including some thicker yarns if you have
· Any interesting beads, buttons and embellishments
· Small scraps of interesting fabrics, felts etc.
· Hand sewing kit – needle, scissors, thimble etc
