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.
