Inspired by a photo I took in a fish market I made this colourful wall hanging. The finished size is approximately 16” x 24”. I will show how I made the pattern and how students can design their own. My pattern is alsoavailable for students to use. The day will be spent auditioning fabrics, cutting and fusing. Tips and hints will be given throughout the day. Paint is used in the project to give the fish a three dimensional appearance (this will be provided). The stitching will need to be carried out at home. Full instruction for finishing the wall hanging will be given in class. All levels.
