Let me take you on your very own creative Journey. The class starts on Thursday. The requirement list is very vague, as everyone's Journey will be very different.
The most important thing is to have your topic picked....don't choose anything too large. My own topic is TIME, but others are, apples, the sea, Nature. Other ideas to help you along your way are Trees, the beach, maps...just think of something you love and go with it. Bring some pictures or magazine cuttings or print outs off the internet relative to your subject. Don't bring anything too precious as we will be using these in the class.
You will also need some calico.
Below is a list of what you CAN bring if you have it....if you don't have it please do not rush out and buy anything as you will have a better idea of what your going to need depending on your topic. Also I can tell you where to go to get the best deals.
Black sharpie markers
paint brushes any kind, bring a selection if you have them.
any kind of markers, pens, pencils etc...
Needles, embroidery thread or any creative threads that are suitable for hand sewing.
if anyone has sweet wrappers left over from xmas..you know the type you get in the boxes, quality street are the best.
NOW....do not panic that you have no idea what is going on, I will be starting at the very beginning and we will be working through things step by step. Remember only bring what you have on the list, if you don't have it you can use mine
Just in case anyone is near LIDL in the next day or so they have some very nice and reasonably priced things in there that you will need. so if you can get in get the following.
