Fabric Scrap Brooch Workshop

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

It has been many months since I've pulled out my craft supplies, or even stitched a thread. I shall not tell stories of woe as to why my craft remains non existent, other than to highlight my oh-so-busy life with children, and the spare time that I do have tends to be focused on writing; a growing passion and possible future career.

Having said that, I have missed teaching recycled craft workshops, so when Nanna Cool Markets asked if I'd like to present a class at their last event, I jumped at the idea.

Putting together bits and pieces of scrap fabric, scissors, brooch pins, my glue gun, needles and thread, I whisked a basket filled with otherwise useless material to a Nanna Cool Market's craft room, ready to teach a lovely group of ladies ways to turn little pieces of odds and ends into rosette flowers in my Fabric Scrap Rosette Brooch Class.


Using a twisting technique, pins, and a needle and thread, fabric can be hand-sewn into an attractive brooch to add to your lapel, brighten up a handbag, or attach a hair pin to wear in your hair.


Each completed brooch finished on the day represented a completely unique and individual style to each participant.


Here is one workshop participant, Ingrid, modelling her completed brooch on her gorgeous refashioned op shop dress:


I really enjoyed teaching recycled craft again, and hope to repeat another class with Nanna Cool Market, offering a different recycled activity next time.

The kids will be grown before you know it and you will have plenty of time to enjoy your writing and craft. Glad you had a lovely workshop experience.
