Your host, Reverse Garbage is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

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

Using materials from Reverse Garbage as the base and then finding a simple image created by participants to illustrate a story, (in this case Aesop's Fables), a simple image is created and sewn using two simple stitches.

In the three-hour workshop, you will have made the book with at least one page finished and you can continue to complete the book at home with the new skills they have learnt. This workshop will be lead by Frances Ingram, a visual artist/illustrator living in the Inner West.

At the end of the class, you will leave with a beautiful fabric fairytale book to continue working on at home and will have gained a new appreciation for upcycling.

We work very hard to reach our minimum numbers for every workshop, but sometimes (not very often) we just don't get there. When this happens, we need to cancel.

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.
