Tyvek surfaces adventure
July 2021 to book through 2sewtextiles.com
Tyvek is a tear and water resistant material made out of polyethylene fibers. It can be painted very well and through heat treatment it takes on wonderfull shapes that can be easily worked by hand or with a sewing machine. For example, you can make individual cards or a small picture, decorate a book or photo album cover or work it into a small textile work. Together we will explore different ways of working with Tyvek: with the iron, with the heat gun and with the soldering iron. We will paint, cut, shrink, sew and machine embroider! It is very playful work and you can continue working and trying out during the afternoon.
