Annette Emms - Inspiring Images

Lots of exciting ways to transfer image and text onto fabric. We won't be using nasty chemicals, just ordinary things like emulsion paint, clingfilm and a hot iron. At the end of the day we will have made a small concertina book containing all the samples and techniques.
