You will make a small hanging piece. Using basic but effective techniques taken from her books, Anne will show you how to create a mixed media collage using items from your collections and charity shop finds.
Your piece will be embellished and richly decorated to create a special souvenir or gift. It can be added to a larger piece at a later date if desired. Sewing machines are useful but not essential. It’s helpful if you choose colours that suit your house/building and an image of your house/building to work from before the course.
