Further Details on Elizabeth McCartney's Embroidered boxes workshop at An Grianan

Elizabeth McCartney - Embroidered Boxes Workshop

Elizabeth McCartney will be giving one of the workshops at the forthcoming An Grianan weekend. Here's some more details about what's involved in her workshop.

Details of the workshop:
During this workshop you will construct a box similar to the one shown in the magazine, using acrylic felt, pelmet vilene and fabric as a base onto which you will applique, free machine and hand embroider, couch, and embellish to your heart's content using any method you desire.  This is an opportunity to use your lovely fabric scraps, threads, buttons, beads, wire, stamps, paint etc.  The faint hearted may use Elizabeth's box pattern if they choose. 

Here's some other examples of Elizabeth's work:
