Today we welcomed Alison Moger to lead us through a workshop to create pictures with scraps of fabric and machine stitch. And inspiration from seeing Alison’s work inspired those attending to produce some wonderful pieces of work which are showcased below….
A very enjoyable day which produced pieces of work to be proud of – well done everyone!
At Dyeing to Paint today the focus was on painting with shaving foam and transfer art paints.
The shaving foam produced some wonderful landscape backgrounds which gave huge scope for creativity. So much so that Corinne started straight away to enhance her background fabric with fabric pens and more paint sprinkled with salt.
Caroline took a much different approach and went for the abstract which also worked extremely well
Meanwhile others decided to further explore the transfer art paints. Kira and Keris were very quietly concentraing on painting an Islamic design
Which, when transferred to fabric, looked terrific
Hillary decided to paint birds that she had seen in a magazine which look very effective
And Glynis painted Islamic images to great effect.
Whilst all this was going on Fiona was quietly creating a tile image with the lino cut tools
And, the day spurred Monica on to think about developing a transfer art paint image that she had made earlier. The image has been bordered with a fabric that has been dyed using soya wax as a resist and is now ready for a little free machine embroidery
A very productive day….. and it went in a flash!!!!
Hilary was also very industrious yesterday. She was covering little note pads with beautifully embroidered fabric. They are being donated to the Tombola stall at the Quilters Exhibition that is being held in the NEC, Birmingham in August.
I am looking forward all the lovely items that have been donated.
