Come and make some fabulous feathers from fabric.

Taking traditional costume from indigenous peoples such as Maori and rainforest peoples as our starting point, create fabric feathers using a range of techniques such as cutting, painting, appliqué, collage and stitching. Use your feathers to create a costume piece such as a feather headband, arm piece or necklace. You will leave the workshop with your own feathered creation to wear!

Tamsin trained in textile design at Loughborough College of Art and Design, and has worked as a costume designer and maker in film and TV. She runs her own collection of costume accessories for children called IWISHIWASA. Tamsin also teaches short courses in embellishment and customizing for clothing at Central St. Martins, London.

All ages welcome.
