New Layered Textiles - Foredown Tower 15th - 19th July

 Fabulous painted newspaper and painted Bondaweb.

 This is going to be a hit and run post - don't have much time as I am about to leave for Shropshire. So lots of photos and not many words.

A five day summer school at Foredown Tower - New Layered Textiles. And it was definitely summer - pheeWWWWeee, very hot. We coped womanfully!!!
There were ten lovely students which is the maximum for that teaching studio.
We covered painted Bondweb on fabric and paper, Tyvek, newspaper faux chenille and cutting CS500 and 800 with a soldering iron and applying it to different back grounds. These images are a small selection of what we got up to -

Newspaper faux chenille -


Painted Vilene Spunbond CS500 and 800 backed with unpainted Bondaweb, cut with a soldering iron and then applied either to fabric of more CS800.


I haven't added the Tyvek images as there has been a lot of Tyvek in the past two posts. Apologies for the rush, there are only so many hours in the day.

My thanks to Val, Pippa, Lea, Trisha, Janet, Helen, Linda, Camilla, Martine and Frances for such a fabulous week.


I am frantically packing for the Textile Study Group summer school where I will be a student for a whole week, I am SO looking forward to it and to seeing all my friends there - Yippeee - Jill - one more sleep to go!

Pray that the Gods of the M25 will be good to me . . . . . 


I will be driving straight down to Redditch on Friday to teach the third weekend of Experimental Textiles - colour wheels! It's got to be done!!!! So you wont hear from me for a good week . . . . 

Be good till then. x x x
