Let’s make some Cushions

A lovely way to brighten up your room and show off your crafting skills

Cushions

We love it at Colouricous when we have a lovely textile project that we can show you all. This is a nice easy one to get started with and it will let you show off your crafting skills as well as brightening up any room or space. the beauty of these cushions is that you can make them as elaborate or as basic as you want, which means you really have a chance to show off your crafting skills if you want to. Watch the video below and you can watch Marilyn Pipe make some of these beautiful cushions.

The Best Fabric Paint

Looking for the perfect fabric paint – here it is. We love this professional grade paint as it is so easy to fix – simply iron the fabric both sides and your fabric can then be washed up to 40 degrees. We have just received a huge delivery of paint with a wonderful selection of colours. We love that there is a long shelf life (not that they stay on the shelf that long!). Also the paint comes in soft easy to squeeze bottles which means easy access. You can block print beautifully with these paints, but they are also wonderful for hand painting fabrics, stencilling and all fabric projects that you want to colour yourself. Beware though, once you have experienced the joy of this wonderful paint, you will be spoilt for ever!

Indian Textiles Beckons!
Spend some wonderful time with us in India

luxury-holiday-India-colouricious-creative-holidays

We have some wonderful trips organised to India later this year and we would for you to join us. Our holidays and tours are always very popular and the people who join us come away with some amazing friendships and memories that will last a life time.

The beauty of these trips is that they are with like minded people who are all passionate about crafting and everything day is designed to ensure you get to see lots of different textile techniques and ideas, all undertaken by villagers and people who have been taught by their mothers and family friends through the ages. A number of these arts and crafts are ancient skills that are only continued by certain tribes and villages and as such, you will only get a chance to see this if you come along with us.

Come with us – we have places! We are going to tour Rajasthan in November and on this tour amongst many trips organised for the 14 days, we will be seeing villagers practising the craft of Bandani Tie & Dye. This type of Tie & Dye originated in SE Asia and spread across India to cover large parts of Rajasthan. The craft is extremely historical and each design carries messages based upon the style and colours that are used. You can watch a video here relating to Bandani Tie & Dye.
