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.
In another bumper edition, with Guest Editor Lynda Monk, we have more wonderful workshops from leading textile artists.
In this edition we have:
Sue Brown makes an impression with her method for gum arabic transfer printing
Wendy Dolan creates a colourful Gaudi-inspired panel using layered fabrics, paint and stitch
Anne Hellyer has double-vision with her appliquéd and machine embroidered seaside village
Amanda Hislop shows us the folding forms for her printed and stitched abstract tree landscapes
Anne Kelly transforms a pre-loved sewing box with collage, in memory of her grandmother
Our ‘Inspired by’ feature continues with the letter ‘B’. Textile artists Carolyn Saxby, Suzette Smart, Janette Bright, Shirley Sherris and Rachael Singleton show us the inspiration behind their work
In our celebrity interview, guest editor Lynda Monk talks to Sandra Meech about 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.
