HOT New Surfaces for Stitch - Day 3 - part 1

We had such a productive day on the third day of the summer school that I will doing 3 posts - this is this the first and it shows some of the 3D samples that were developed that day. This FAB Tyvek box was made by the lovely lady who sat in the corner by the stereo whose name I wrote down and consequently lost - apologies . . . ..

This box was made bu Jo Hogg, pelmet/craft Vilene cut to shape, folded and embellished with a Tyvek shape.

This trio of Tyvek bowls was made by Julia Fonnereau

Marion Hornall created this bowl by layering up Tyvek and polyester organza which was machine stitched together and then zapped with a heat gun. This was then shaped further with heat to create this cheeky little bowl.

Sue Dunkerly used the opportunity of time on the summer school to develop some ideas she had been working on based around seed pods. Layers of Tyvek. polyester organza and Vilene Spunbond were layered, machine stitched and zapped, then shaped to create the shell shape on which Sue placed a bead made from Tyvek and threads.

very delicate and beautiful Tyvek flowers by Sharon Tavener. Sharon has used small beads and pieces of coral to created the stamen inside the flowers.

I will be posting more on this summer school over the next few days, I am still teaching my 3 one day workshops at Inkberrow Design Centre so am a bit short of time at the moment. Brenda and I are off to me our good friend Mary Day for dinner so will dash off now. I will also be posting about what we are getting up to at Inkberrow Design Centre but that will have to wait till the weekend. I hope to be able to confirm a new course of 7 weekends over 9 months based here at Inkberrow - Yeehaa!!! it will be good to teaching a longer course again. Watch this space . . . x
