Surface Design Workshop with Lisa Walton

It’s taken me a while to get the pictures sorted but back in May I had a great time at the surface design workshop with Lisa Walton (Dyed & Gone to Heaven) over a weekend and learnt some great techniques on how to design my own fabric. We used a range of techniques to pattern the fabric which I have also tried at home. Head over to Lisa’s website if you want to find out about these surface design techniques.

I’ve put together a gallery of the pieces that I left with at the end of the workshop as well as some pieces I made at home:

I have now started to create a reference book with the techniques I learnt from this course and the other courses I have attended (now 3 of Lisa’s courses) – over time this will be a great source of creative ideas for me 🙂

You can find out about the courses Lisa runs by heading over to her website and/or Facebook page.

I have had a go at home using similar techniques – they were a good test of what I had learnt. One thing that is important is how the fabric is dried – unfortunately the sun went in just as I put these out so they would have turned out more vibrant.
