Suitable for: children aged 8-12. Sewing experience required
This Paper Collage Book cover is a cross-over between an art and a sewing class to introduce children to mixed media textiles.
This is an ideal class for children between 8 and 12 years and encourages upcycling of paper for new uses.
- how to upcycle newspapers and magazines that would normally be thrown away
- using paint to add a personal colour palette
- stitching the paper collage to add texture and interest
- making into a book cover, a phone or tablet case.
All materials are provided. The child should bring a book about A5 or A6 size – this can be a notebook, a novel, a school text book or jotter. Children should already be able to use a sewing machine confidently. If they can’t, then they can take my Kids Introductory sewing class.
This class must be pre-booked at: https//www.artisanstitch.co.uk/paper-collage-book-cover/. For information or enquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 0773 939 7369
