Summer Mandalas Online Workshop with Jessica Grady
Summer Mandalas Online Class
In this 90-minute Zoom workshop we will look at textile techniques and ideas for using colour, pattern and texture to help you create your own mini mandala inspired artwork. You will add your own embellishments and decorative hand stitches to your design. Working in an embroidery hoop will give you a frame for your finished textile art piece so that you can display it easily. This is a colourful and creative textile class that can be enjoyed by all abilities.
This is an online workshop.
