Workshop on the Web Taster

Workshop on the Web is a quarterly publication that is only available on the internet until December 2017. 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 £18.00 (British pounds) for three issues (June, September and November). Each issue has at least seven complete workshops and an interview, in addition to the features listed above. From December 2017, Workshop on the Web will be available bi-annually in book form.

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 June 2016 issue.

Lynda Monk's new book, 'Beautiful Bonded Surfaces' will be out very soon. She has some really exciting ideas for creating multi-media fabrics which combine Tyvek (an easily obtainable coated paper or fabric) with a variety of other materials using heat treatments. Lynda turns these surfaces into items as diverse as fashion garments, bags or intricate vessels. There will be extra online classes on the d4d site, with Lynda showing further explorations to those who have purchased the book. Find out more on www.d4daisy.com.
