What glorious weekend it was in Folkstone. Warm and sunny, I could have almost imagined it was the Italian Riviera... well, I can dream can't I? Despite being there to work for three days I managed early morning and evening strolls along the cliff top each day, with these fabulous views. On Friday we even had a clear view of the French coast.
But for the rest of Friday, Saturday and Sunday I was in the classroom with sixteen lovely members of the East Kent Embroiderers' Guild.
Lots of fun cutting, sticking and designing followed by free machining and a liberal sprinkling of laughter... they all worked really hard.
By the end of the weekend each of them had finished a beautiful textured landscape. Each one was totally unique and absolutely stunning.
I could show you each individual piece of work but that's a lot of photos...
But I think these collages give a good idea of how fabulous their landscapes were.
This is the most satisfying part of teaching to see each individual produce something beautiful and unique... Such talent!
They took a picture of me at work... Although it doesn't really seem like work most of the time!
Especially when they were all so talented and self reliant... I even had time to finish my own little landscape as I demonstrated each stage of the process..
Thank you ladies... It really was a lovely weekend.
