Learn how to illustrate a fabric book with two simple stitches in this fun Sydney workshop!

In the four hour workshop, you will Illustrate the story of your choice using appliqué, glue and stitches. At the end of the class, you will leave with the start of a beautiful fabric fairytale book to continue working on at home and you will have gained a new appreciation for upcycling.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced alike. For those with little or no experience, you will be using two simple stitches - straight stitch and the beautiful french knot.

These artist books can be used in classrooms, for parents with children as a springboard for storytelling. They make a wonderful gift. This is a mindful, meditative activity that creates a work of art that is lasting and worthwhile.

Materials are provided, however if you have small scissors and a sketchbook, please bring along. Paper and pencils provided. (Feel free to bring your own favourite materials.)

This workshop will be lead by Ffrances Ingram, a visual artist/illustrator living in the Inner West.

Frances Ingram is a visual artist/illustrator living in the Inner West. She has been working in textiles since a child, studied at the School of Wool and Textiles in Adelaide, and has just returned from a two-month residency at the Textile Centre in Iceland where she explored prod rugs using Icelandic materials. Having been brought up in Wales, textiles had to be functional - an idea which she has never really shaken off. She has tried to make her functional items as beautiful and colourful as possible.

Thoughtful and attentive teacher who shared skills, knowledge and passion for what she does generously with all of us. Talented, patient and creative. A good range of fabric to choose from, and so glad we could take what we needed to complete our project at home. I've been passionate about Reverse Garbage from the 80s and welcome the opportunity to still visit, drop in for a Saturday snack, browse the Bower and participate in a workshop. I'm thrilled to have mastered the French knot!
