End of Term

Yesterday was my last City and Guilds class before the Easter break so in the absence of much stitching from me I'll share some of the work finished by the students. Angela has completed her design work on texture with this wonderful rusty seashore panel.

Linda W finished her design work on colour with this box, covered with hot colours on the outside and cool colours inside.

Gill also chose to make a box which contains laminated cards full of coloured images and designs.

As well as design there has been plenty of stitching too and the most recent project has been to explore the experimental properties of Lutadur which has resulted in three very different projects. Angela made a book cover and a stitched picture but my photo of the picture didn't come out sucessfully.


Linda W made two beautiful vessels.


And Linda C-H made this stitched panel based on the nursery rhyme "Mary, Mary, quite contrary"


Well done ladies and thank you for another successful and enjoyable term. I'm out teaching again tomorrow, this time at Art Van Go for another day creating landscapes from different textures produced with the sewing machine.
