Requirements for Hands-on ‘Kantha with Inktense’ with Margaret Wilkinson- 14th August 2021

A5 Piece of white cotton

2 A5 pieces of muslin

Green, blue, brown inktense pencils these may be bought separately. However, it is worth thinking of investing in a small tin as they are very useful to the textile artist.

Small to medium soft paintbrush, jar of water.

Preferably Sashiko thread in blue, brown and green or embroidery thread.

A copy right free internet image of a winter tree (these are easy to come across or a sketch if you prefer)

If you have done kantha before and want to choose your own image please do but keep it simple and adjust your colours accordingly.
