This Workshop is a Britex Fabrics Favorite and will sell out Quickly!
Be a textile know-it-all! In this class we'll detail the process from fiber to textile, show you loads of samples and dig into the terminology that will deeply improve your experience whether you are a textile lover already or needing a little help on a new venture. We'll start by demystifying the major fiber types through a step-by-step introduction to cotton, wool, silk, linen and their man-made counterparts. Next, we'll discuss woven fabrics vs. knit fabrics and how each of these are constructed. During the class you'll put together a useful swatch kit to reference in the future whenever a refresher is desired.This workshop is perfect for anyone wanting to improve their knowledge of textiles no matter the trade.About InstructorGeana Sieburger is a former Marketing Director of Britex Fabrics and instigator of Pop-up Britex.
