On Saturday November 16th Amanda Clayton ran a workshop in which we 'explored the decorative image in a neutral palette'.
|We started the day with some paper exercises ,drawing,cutting and ripping leaf shapes.|
|Our tissue paper and newsprint paper collages were then put together as a patchwork|
|Amanda showed us some fabric darning .........|
|with a curtain that she made for her sister.|
|We then created 'washing lines' of pieced sheers|
|and the added our 'fabric darned' creations|
|and Janet really had to think!!|
|Amanda suggested how we could place our stitched pieces on the background.|
|She also showed us ways of adding weight to our pieces by incorporating small found objects such as stones or small metal objects.|
|Amanda is now producing excitingthree dimensional work by pleating silk organza|
|Our 'Chinese Laundry' with our stitched treasures|
|The day was extremely relaxing and left us with plenty of ideas work on in the future.|
Thank you Amanda.
