A multi skill two day course with Kasia Jacquot.
If you love fabric, pattern and texture this comprehensive two day course is your ticket to creating the textile heaven you’ve dreamt about.
Kasia Jacquot a regular embroidery teacher at The Happen Store is bringing together three of her passions which stem from years of experience as well as childhood traditions from her home in Poland. This course is exclusive to The Happen Store.
Cut-Print-Stitch combines three creative skills which produce the most exquisite (and easy) results on fabric.
CUT (day 1)
Kasia will teach traditional Polish paper cutting which involves folding paper and strategically making decorative cuts to produce magical symmetrical patterns when unfolded.
PRINT (day 1)
These paper cuts will then be used as stencils. Kasia will guide you through a simplified process of basic silk screen printing to transfer your patterns onto the fabric.
STITCH (day 2)
Finally the design is given its magical touch by embellishing it with a variety of embroidery stitches which Kasia will guide you through on the second day.
You will leave with a beautiful piece of printed and stitched linen for which Kasia will also give examples and ideas of what you can turn it into. The creative textile world will be your oyster after this two day deeply immersive course. Easily print large pieces of fabric to turn into skirts or dresses. Print and use simple and quick stitches on your table cloths or cushions. Create contemporary folk art wall hangings for your home that will become the talking point. You will be given resources and guidance after the course to enable you to continue your new skills at home.
