Techniques will include embroidery stitching and embellishments, small scale printing where you can create your own texture stamps to add pattern and shapes and jewellery assembly, so every item is finished and ready to wear.
Materials will include a selection of fabrics, felts, iron on vinyl and fusible fabrics as well as a variety of embellishments. Participants are welcome to bring any textile items which they would like to include in their designs. This can be a lovely way of reusing odds and ends of scrap materials.

Syrah will provide all necessary materials but if you are welcome to bring any of your own materials too. For example:-buttons, beads, embroidery threads, scrap fabric like cotton, felt, ribbon or trimmings.
I have always been interested in creative arts & crafts since a young age so it was inevitable that I would have a career in making. After graduating from DJCAD in printed textiles. I devoted my time to expanding my skills & experience by volunteering with creative organisations within Perth, Dundee & Angus.
In 2007 I opened Syrah Jay, to create and sell my own textile jewellery, since then I have developed my designs into more alternative materials such as cork, wood, concrete & jesmonite.I love to create something unique and wearable out of unusual materials. I also enjoy creating bespoke items of jewellery for my clients working one to one is an amazing collaborative experience.
In addition to my making, I also teach a range of creative skill workshops. Working with others is an amazing experience I have met so many interesting and creative people, that have greatly influenced my creative works
