Exciting tutorials from contemporary artists
For nearly 20 years, Workshop on the Web (WoW) was 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. There, you’ll find more workshops by great artists, videos showing new techniques, Lynda Monk’s Marvellous Mixed Media course, an online Gallery featuring work by our WOWies, together with access to our blog and members-only Facebook group.
