Discover the wonderful art of fabric sculpting and create yourself a stunning journal. In this session with Abigail, you will learn basic fabric sculpting techniques, and how to use the materials and embellishments to decorate the cover of an A5 hard-backed journal, creating stunning textures and designs.
Once your project has been dried, Abigail will teach you how to use a dry brushing technique to really enhance the fabric texture and surface detail using colour and shading.
The exact design for your journal is up to you and your imagination but examples will be available for inspiration and design guidance along with a wide range of fabrics and embellishments.
This is a perfect workshop for those new to fabric sculpting and could be paired with the Abigail’s afternoon session, using Fabric Sculpture to create a cute garden gnome – click here for info.
Please note there is a £8 material charge payable on the day.

What to expect
Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences.
There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to!
Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-session break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. All refreshments are included.
Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.
What you’ll need to bring with you
All you need will be provided. Just wear clothes that you don't mind messing up.
