Wonderful week in Adelaide

I had a wonderful time teaching in Adelaide at the Embroiderers Guild Summer School - two big and fabulous classes and I must thank them all for their enthusiasm and talent and hard work.

The first two days were my Text-tile - paper - cloth - text and images although I think we failed with a bit of the text - just difficult to get through everything in the time.


We played with napkins - tissutex - newspaper (my new discovery which I plan a lot more of)


Annette worked diligently away in her tiny corner and produced so many fabulous pieces


Start of some newspaper play


Some ethereal stuff happening


Some simple image transfer - I had a few but went for one




This is mine - actually was a disaster but I love what I have done and as soon as I have time I have plenty to try


Fabulous use of skeleton leaves and stencils


And this one too


Some lovely layers


I loved how this grew too




Catherine's was great - you just need to turn your head on an angle



A paper napkin in action


Annette working more wonders but you need to turn your head again


And lived this



Ands another which I loved


Using stencils on silk paper


Some layers again - turn your head again


And Karen had fun


Another wonderful layering



Loved this one


And how this turned out too from simple stitch - we played with loads of different stuff - wonderful class - these sorts of happenings make me think heaps on the hop and are so stimulating

Tomorrow I will show work from my second workshop

Sad I only managed the first 2 days but it was very stimulating and I came home full of ideas and have been playing ever since.

These samples look so fun and beautiful. I love the look of your compressed sponge in later post too...thinking I might have to try that. Happy weekend :-)
