Creating art with the Embroiderers Guild

Wednesday, 26 October 2011

Last Saturday I attended an all-day workshop with the Embroiderers Guild in Headingley.

The original plan was to make a little book, but I ended up creating a work of art (I use the phrase loosely).

I love peacocks, so I had taken along some feathers and a load of matching threads, wools, buttons and beads.

There was a lot of Bondaweb and some tea staining involved to build up layers on the calico and create all sorts of textures.

It was a great day and I really enjoyed letting my creativity out with no particular purpose or reason.
