Dyed, torn, bonded newspaper
The students painting Bondaweb . . . .
. . . then painting newspaper.
We had a very productive first day at Bobby's studio Moor Hall http://www.bobbybritnell.co.uk/ it is a wonderful space to work in and of course having Bobby around settling us in and generally looking after us was the icing on the cake. The students produced some FAB work on the first day and I will update you with what they get up to today over the weekend.
We will be working on faux chenille and making boxes today - should be fun!
My lecture at Marches Embroiderer's Guild in the evening went well. I was very nervous as Bobby AND Ruth Issett were in the audience but they didn't heckle and things went smoothly, if a little faster than I had planned. Why do you always speed up when you are nervous?
so - onto the last day at Moor Hall then onto Redditch tonight to unload and set up for my workshop tomorrow. I will be teaching a 2 day Hot Textiles and a 2 day Extreme Surfaces for Stitch at Inkberrow Design Centre
more soon . . . . . x
