We concentrated on different free machine embroidery stitches.
Using coloured foils,
and painted leaves (real ivy leaves)
The emphasis was on making samples that could be used for future projects.
The photographs are just a very small selection of what they achieved during the day as each student made at least three samples each.
Lots of colour, sparkle and Razzle Dazzle!
What was also lovely today was that I had several young ladies in the class - some A level textile students plus a young teacher. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy teaching students of all ages... in fact ladies of a certain age (and I include myself) make up most of my classes. But it was great to know these skills are being passed onto to a younger generation.
I tried to take at least one photo of everyone's work but I know I must have left someone out... because there are less photos than students, so I'm sorry! Everyone did fabulous samples...
all different... all unique.
And I have had a lovely day... thank you!
There is a second Razzle Dazzle Day at Art Van Go taking place on July 8th... but hurry... there are only three places left!
