Kingfisher Wall hanging

This class has sold out, but if you feel you may be interested, in this or something similar drop us a line with your contact details and we will be in touch when a new class is scheduled.   

The kingfisher wall hanging follows the water theme Under the Sea,which we did two years ago. This time, we have taken inspiration from the beautiful colours of the kingfisher in all its glory.  We have used some textured fabrics to add depth to the overall effect adding a slight shimmer to the bird's tail.

The picture is not quite finished but the design features the kingfisher on a branch over the river, surrounded by the flowers and bullrushes.  Quality of fabric is crucial in making the whole design come alive,  adding to the overall effect; complete the design using black thread and free motion around the applique shapes to add definition,  beads, ribbon and wool create the movement of the river.

On the day  you will learn

  • Painting onto fabrics using the mixed media paints
  • Use a stencil for the grasses in the background to create a hedgerow
