POSTPONED Paper Collage Book Cover

Thursday 16 April, 2020
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Teacher: Jen Skedd
Suitable for: children aged 8-12. Sewing experience required

Price: £22

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.

What’s involved?

  • 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 jen@artisanstitch.co.uk or 0773 939 7369

Tutor Jen Skedd is a lifelong sewist since age 7, and a degree-trained Textile Artist/Designer. Artisan Stitch has won a Certificate of Excellence and is rated Best sewing classes in Edinburgh.
