Creative Excitement with Technology and the Scan n Cut Brother machines

Workshops Sponsored by Waikato District Council and Creative Communities Scheme

Join the Cutting Edge Textile group to experiment and expand your textile / mixed media technique range, during two and one day workshops.

Brother Scan n Cut machines have the ability to precisely cut patterns in a range of material, including paper, fabric, vinyl, foam and balsa wood.

Machines are provided or bring your own and learn exciting fast ways of making your own stencils, stamps, die cuts and fabric applique or quilting shapes.

Use the 800+ built in machine designs or scan in your own drawings, photo’s or clip art.
Starting with the image, use many easy to learn techniques to create patterns of any size - as small as you want and up to 12 x 24 inches. Then in a couple of minutes the machine will cut out the design, fast and accurately.
Imagine how many stencils and stamps and die cuts you will create during the class.

Choose the workshop or specific class to participate in for your interest or join in them all for in depth learning and creating.
To make sure everyone has plenty of time to make all they need with the machines, the class participant number is restricted to just 8 people.
