Chris brought everything we needed, from a wide range of wooden stamps, stencils and paints to her vast stash of hand-dyed fabric, beads, sequins, threads and wools. We spent a happy and very busy couple of days creating patterns, motifs, re-arranging layouts and then stitching and embellishing. All works to be completed at home, of course, but we felt we’d had a really indulgent and satisfying time.
Chris is a generous and very helpful tutor, and she has been kind enough to put a very complimentary post about us on her blog, with some photos of work in progress:
|Decisions, decisions, which motifs to use?|
|Deciding on the layout|
|Preparing to stitch|
|The fun part is selecting the threads and embellishments|
|A very varied collection of themes shaping up|
I had a wonderful time with the lovely ladies!
They did some absolutely stunning work...
