HOT New Surfaces for Stitch - Day 3 - part 2

  amazing layers by Mary Campbell - layers of zapped Vilene Spunbond and craft/pelmet Vilene cut with a soldering iron

The students produced some amazing work on this 3 day workshop at Art Van Go there many different levels of experience in the group but everyone got on really well, sharing materials, experience . . . . and chocolates . . . .

Beautiful textures by Tracey Fordham, layers of zapped Vilene Spunbond and ployester organza applied to a painted Bondaweb background

More zapped Vilene Spunbond embellished with French knots and stab stitch. This lovely sample ended up on the cover of a sketch book.

I was particularly pleased with this sample by Phillipa Hamilton, it is the best piece of work I have seen so far that manages to incorporate and disguise textures Tyvek - stunning!

another sample by Phillipa, this time layers of heavy Tyvek and polyester organza machine stitched together and then zapped with a heat gun.

This clever textured piece by Sue Dunkerley was just a rectangle of heavy Tyvek layered with a piece of polyester organza with free machine stitch. The Tyvek was then textured with an iron which also gathered the polyester organza - FAB!!!!

so you can see we had a good time and developed some wonderful samples - I will post the final samples tomorrow - 


Heads up for my Denman posse, Jill and Tallulah - if something seems to be too good to be true - it probably is - 
There is no fool like an old fool!!!
