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 Reviews were based on those published in the December 2012 issue. News & Views and Books were in the June 2013 issue.

Coming Soon, 'Cut, Shape, Stitch': a new book from D4daisy Books. It aims to bring together cutters of all descriptions. The book progresses through simple shapes and techniques to more complex structures. Each section begins with a description of the tools used and the materials required. In many cases step-by-step photographs show exactly how it is done. So come on a journey that will explore the full potential of the cutting edge. There are ideas for all manner of cutting devices, from simple hole punches to easy scan or computer controlled cutters that enable you to import your own designs. Some of them can even be used as printing presses. Find out more on www.d4daisy.com.
