 Japanese Inspirations

Pat Archibald

£35 + £3 kit for use of Markal and brushes

Pat will introduce different ways of working with Markal paint sticks and then we will move onto working on a project so that you can take home something that will be almost finished. 

Using one or two beautiful Japanese family crests we will use Markal and simple stencils to transfer the designs to fabric. We will add a narrow border and binding and finish with some quilting.
