My Class "Peaceful and Pondering" Fabric Lace Book/Journal is now OPEN

For those of you who are keen to join in
my new class
where you will learn how to create your very own
Fabric Lace Book/Journal



bookings are now open over at Creative Workshops
 and you can enrol by clicking on this link below

If you love collecting vintage laces, doilies
 textured fabrics - old and new along with
embellishments such as sari ribbons, millinery flowers,
 fibres, vintage jewellery, rusty items and paper ephemera
etc. etc.


then here is a chance where you can use
them to create a book which
is a reflection
of you and your own art style. 

In saying this
This style of book can be created with materials of your own choosing
e.g. new or old, bright or muted colours,
modern or contemporary, steampunk etc. 

You choose your own theme and your own images
to suit the style of book you desire.


(Lots of delicious lace layers!)

I will show you what sort of fabrics and laces to choose,
how to build a fabric collage and pockets,
how to prepare and arrange pages
into signatures, create a spine and covers
for your book and finally a way to 
tie it together. 

There is a complete
 Class Description and a Supply List
over at Creative Workshops with much more detail.
It commences on:
 Monday, 14th September
so you have a few weeks now
to gather everything
you need
to create your book.  

I would like to thank Gail Schmidt over at Creative Workshops
for helping me pull this all together
and also
(Lace Age Girl Blog)
for her amazing work, expertise and fortitude 
 in videoing this class for me.
I am ever grateful to her for her dedication in completing
this exercise.

I do hope you are going to have lots of fun with this
and along the way very soon I will be sharing
Giveaway or two.

  10. Congratulations on this exciting venture. Your lace creations are stunning and how delightful to be able to learn straight from the "master". Creative Class Bliss...

  11. Big congrats Suzy! What a gorgeous course this is and Gail is such a lovely person as well to work with! I know this class will be so successful! Thank you for your kind words of encouragement on my blog. It really means so much to me! <3

  12. Stunning, just stunning work!! I can't stop drooling!! LOL! x

  13. Your work is so inspiring. I always visit it when I need a pick-me-up.
    Congratulations on your upcoming class. I signed up for it immmediately and am looking forward to a "behind the scene" look at your creations.

  14. Saw that you were doing this class over at Gail's place and just know you'll get lots of creative people joining up Suzy! It's a beautiful book and it would be interesting to see all the different looks of the finished pieces.
    Congrats on this new class and I hope it all goes well for you. ♥

  15. Suzy, thanks for your kind acknowledgement. I'm sure we both learned heaps from this project! I was so lucky to do a lace book making workshop with you in person, and to see your gorgeous artworks and studio up close. It really helped me to get past my blockages of not knowing where to start, being afraid to cut into my lace collection, and being afraid to make a mistake. I'm now on my journey to expressing my own artistic style. I know that everyone who takes your course will grow and enjoy learning from you and your special style. I hope we'll see some of these completed works soon on your blog. Love and hugs, Jesse

  16. Congratulations Suzy! I saw Gail had posted the news on FB and she is a delightful person. I think it is wonderful you are hosting a class and it is long overdue for you, I would love to join in but I have taken so many Fabric Journal classes from Nellie and KC that I don't dare add another to my list at this time, perhaps in the future.
    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and give me a heads up. Your work is beautiful and all the gals that haven't had any Fabric journal experience shall have a ball from an exceptional teacher!
    Enjoy the journey sweetie and in my heart I'm with you every step of the way:)Lots of love, xoxo

  17. Congratulations on teaching this class, dear Suzy! I see you've already got some very enthusiastic students. They will love it, I'm sure. I look forward to seeing Liz' mermaid journal coming to life.
    Have a great weekend :)!

  18. Dear Suzy,

  19. How wonderful, Suzy! You are so talented, it was just a matter of time.
    Congratulations and best wishes!

  20. I would so love to take your class, but I simply can't carve out any more time at the moment. If I could only figure out how to do away with sleep I would accomplish so much more!! I know, beyond any doubt, that your class will be a huge success and I will be very envious of those who get to play along.
