CUTTING FUSING AND MANIPULATING FABRICS - Margaret Beal
This workshop is full of ideas for using the fine tipped soldering iron on synthetic
fabrics.
After a brief recap on the three basic techniques of cutting, fusing and mark-making,
we shall then expand on various new ways of using them.
Some of the methods are easier than others and depending on the fabrics used there will be
a certain amount of trial and error involved.
Needless to say, the day will be relaxing and fun.
List of requirements A very fine tipped soldering iron 240 volts 18-24 watts. See below.
Medium size terracotta flower pot with a drainage hole in the bottom. This is used as a
soldering iron stand (the tip of the iron sits in the hole)

Mains extension lead (please try to bring one)

melting fabric.

A piece of fine wire wool (grade 0000) to clean the tip of the soldering iron
Any flat metal templates you would like to try using.

I will bring a variety of fabrics ready cut for use on the day at a cost of £3.50 per person;
these will be available for those who wish to use them.
