CourseCraft

Come spend some delightful time playing with foil and photo transfer as you create little winged friends, ready to turn into lovely postcards or mini art quilts. Learn two easy techniques for transferring photocopies onto cloth and please your inner magpie with easy to apply, shiny, permanent, metallic foil. Learning a little about Thermofax screen printing is an added bonus that I’m sure you will fall in love with.

  • I loved this class so much. I had a great time breaking out the stencils I’ve stored away and trying the grey glue and foiling on them. They worked. All of the tips and guidance are so helpful. I’m sure I’ll be making some more fun stuff with what I've learned here.
