WHY MAKE MARKS?

Mark making is a way of individualising your textile and stitch importantly giving it a ‘signature’ that identifies it as you. In addition, marks add vibrance and interest to your work. Now you can learn mark making online.

QUILTING

I continue at the present time with my hexagons and first handmade coat. The lining and wadding have arrived, as a consequence I am going as fast as I can, given it is all hand stitched. Consequently this is going to take some considerable time.

Mark Making For All Craft and Art

Mark making is an important part of all art and craft. It takes your art from ordinary to extraordinary. From the earliest marks made by man to contemporary art, mark making distinguishes a person’s art or craft.

At an early age, we draw without fear. But many of us lose that ability. Get in touch with your inner artist. I want you to free your expression, get rid of the fear and discover the pleasures of mark making.
