For nearly 20 years, Maggie Grey’s Workshop on the Web (WoW) has been an innovative online magazine for all textile enthusiasts. The great news is that WoW is now a book. But not just a book as all who buy it will gain free access to the WOWbook Members’ Club. Here, you’ll find more workshops by great artists, videos showing new techniques, Maggie Grey’s online course, a selling gallery and access to the ‘members only’ Facebook pages.
As usual in the new WOWbook we have some wonderful artists. Margaret Beal wields her soldering iron while Carol Coleman builds up a panel with machine embroidery. Jan Evans introduces foam printing techniques and. Maggie Grey is whizzing away with her Embellisher machine and hand felting punch. Solar reactive film offers some great possibilities and Adele Thomas and Dee Priest show how the resulting prints can be used. Cas Holmes is our star for the interview section.
In this edition we have:
Margaret Beal who has some great new ideas for working with a soldering iron A versatile technique for machine embroidery with Carol Coleman
A ‘sketchbook to stitch’ workshop from Jan Evans which contains a brilliant translation to stitch
Maggie Grey, who has gone needle-felting crazy, with ideas for both hand and machine embellishing
Adele Thomas and Dee Priest with step-by-step guidance on using Solarfast light-reactive dyes
An informative section looking at how five of our favourite embroiderers, such as Jan Beaney and Sue Hotchkis, translate their ideas to stitch
Our star interview is with Cas Holmes. It’s full of interesting facts and beautiful examples of her work
In the free online Members’ Club, we find Maggie and Amo House. Amo is working on ammonites while Maggie will be looking at extensions to her embellisher technique (including a video to illustrate it).
More content will be added to the Members’ Club throughout the coming months. Maggie’s Course will be continuing with new ideas, focusing on building up from backgrounds and including many new techniques.
