'BURNT' with Marilyn Farrow May 2016

An action packed workshop where Marilyn demonstrated numerous techniques using heat tools of various kinds to distress, distort and deconsruct synthetic fabrics and fibres. Using a soldering iron, hot air gun, domestic iron, naked flame and more, she showed us how to alter the surface in a variety of ways, transforming the textiles ready for embellishing, layering and incorporation into masterpieces. Members were enthused with the possibilities and spent a glorious day experimenting with many of the methods - without burning the place down!
