Fabric collage workshop looking remarkably calm and under-control yesterday! I had a fantastic day in the company of 7 lovely ladies making these pictures from scraps of hand-dyed material. Everyone had brought a small treasure to incorporate in their work: vintage linen buttons, sparkly beads, small charms. Precious items with lots of memories attached to them.
After auditioning different pieces of fabric, a final choice was made and then the pieces stitched down to a calico background. We tried a few new stitches, making small samples to include in the work whilst pieces of lace and ribbon added continuity to the final collage.
I felt really proud when newbie Janet said she was 'Feeling accomplished' at the end of the day. Thank you everyone!
