Brooch Workshop - Short Video Tutorial

Free tutorial

Learn how to create a quick and easy brooch using fabric sculpting techniques.

This quick tutorial is a brilliant introduction to fabric sculpting and the dry brushing colouring technique.

It is a session that I often offer as a taster session at events and it is wonderful seeing the faces of those who take part as they realise the possibilities of this technique.

Materials Needed:​

  • MDF Disc

  • Brooch back

  • Fabric Hardener (i.e. Powertex, Paverpol, Sculptin)

  • Fabrics - t-shirt & dishcloth

  • Ammonite - moulded with air dried clay

  • Flat brush

  • Gold Mica Powder

  • Water-based varnish

Materials in purple are provided in my 'basic' Brooch Project Kit which contains enough to make at least three collars.

My 'full' Brooch Project Kit contains all materials in both purple and orange.
