I am working on some pieces for the Guild at 51, for their paper exhibition. I am enjoying experimenting with paper, fabric and thread. They will be small portfolio pieces- the exhibition within the gallery starts on Sept 2nd.
I had a lovely day on Saturday at Cotswolds Embroiderers Guild in Cheltenham taking a print workshop. A very successful day and a chance to use my gelli plate I bought at the N.E.C. I need a lot more time playing with it! The gold textile paint worked very well too. I'm not doing any workshops next year and just the Glos Guild one in Nov now, which is fully booked but I have said I would do a taster workshop for Lizzi Walton at Select in Cheltenham late October. More details when I know more myself.
Yesterday I went to the N.E.C. with Linda Babb (also a Brunel Broderer) to the Festival of Quilts. You need a lot of energy to get around all the quilts and stalls.I bought a geli plate for the printing workshop I am giving tomorrow with the Cotswold Guild and I had a go on the Janome embellisher - see my sample above- which I am thinking of buying. So many quilts to see and beautiful things to buy. Naturally we came home penniless and footsore!
