Artist and Teacher, Ruth Fones will take you step by step to create your own original embossed artwork. During this guided embossing workshop you will be introduced to both hand and machine embossing techniques. You will use a variety of hand embossing tools to first draw your design on tactile drawing paper – the surface of the paper raises up as you draw! Then you will create your own embossing plate using collage techniques to run through the embossing press. You can then adjust your collage, combine techniques or create another to have a few designs to choose from. Examples, photographs to work from and stencils will be provided. If you have a particular landscape photograph that is special to you that you’d like to work from then please bring that along. You’ll also have the lovely view out of A Touch of Craft‘s studio window which will provide you with some beautiful inspiration at this time of year!

How long is the class?

The class is a 3 hour class with a break half way to enjoy a cuppa or bring something stronger if you wish!

What will I take home?

You will leave the class with a framed 8 x 6 inch piece of embossed paper art in an A4 frame ready to hang on your wall or gift to a loved one. All materials, tools, papers and frames included. You will also take home the skills to carry on exploring hand embossing techniques independently.

Please note:

This class is £30 pp at a special introductory price at A Touch of Craft (normally £35)
