Workshop on the Web Taster

Workshop on the Web is a quarterly publication that is only available on the internet. It features the very best tutors from all points of the compass, with step-by-step workshops showing details of techniques. These include hand and machine stitching, surface decoration, innovation in all its forms and make a point of showing how to work with new materials. Mixed media and paper arts are also included.

After this introductory issue, the workshop articles and the reviews will be password controlled. Your subscription brings you the password. A subscription costs only £20.00 (British pounds) for a whole year. (Click the subscribe now button for equivalents in other currencies.) Each issue (there are four each year) has at least seven complete workshops and an interview, in addition to the features listed above.

Have a look at them all but, perhaps, click on the pic to start with the workshop tasters below.
Note that the Product, News & Views and Book reviews were published in the December 2014 issue.

'Long Diaries and Tall Tales' is a new book by Maggie Grey with a theme of visual diaries and story-telling. In some cases, there are travellers' tales to be told in the form of stitched, mixed-media panels that form a diary of a journey. These are busy, bustling pieces designed to bring back memories. Myths and legends also feature in the book, telling tall tales. Ideas are shared on the construction of pieces and step-by-step sequences cover many of the techniques used. Photographs and inkjet prints give a very personal aspect and Maggie has lots of ideas for new methods for presenting them. These are augmented by small areas of stitching and this is a great way to use up the samples that we all have tucked away in the cupboard. Put together with the photographs, these provide texture and contrast for some interesting and rewarding pieces. Find out more on www.d4daisy.com.
