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.

In the free online Members’ Club, Nikki Parmenter starts us off in the Bonus Workshops section by showing us how to create her dragonfly dish, and Karen Torrisi makes a hand-beaded fluted rose which can be used to embellish your work. Amo House talks temari balls in her Video and we also have Lynda Monk’s next Pots & Pods Video.
More content will be added to the Members’ Club throughout the coming months, including the continuation of Lynda’s Marvellous Mixed Media course where she takes a different technique or material and explores it in depth.
