Exciting tutorials from contemporary artists
For nearly 20 years, Maggie Grey’s Workshop on the Web (WoW) has been an innovative online magazine for all textile enthusiasts. The great news is that WoW is now a book. But not just a book as all who buy it will gain free access to the WOWbook Members’ Club. Here, you’ll find more workshops by great artists, videos showing new techniques, Maggie Grey’s online course, a selling gallery and access to the ‘members only’ Facebook pages.
WOWbook June 2018
In this edition we have:
- A colourful new twist on Nuno felting with print and stitch from Clare Bullock
- A great idea for hand stitching from Sue Dove
- Hot mixed media with a difference from Marian Jazmik
- A sketchbook brainwave from Linda and Laura Kemshall
- Alysn Midgelow-Marsden covering a world of fascinating techniques in her wall hanging

In the free online Members’ Club we find Maggie, who is excited about her new technique for trees, plus videos from Amo House and Maggie. We also have an interview with Clare Bullock. The Facebook gang share their favourite products in their usual colourful fashion.
More content will be added to the Members’ Club throughout the coming months.
Maggie’s Course will be continuing with new ideas – focusing on texture and grids – now there’s a combination.

Finally I just had to show you this piece by Lorraine Fitches. She made it from Angie Hughes instructions in the first WOWbook.
