Cotswolds Guild November 9th 2013

A delicious combination of colour and glitz.

Apologies for the lack of posts recently - I seem to have run out of steam . . . 

I will be catching up over the next week or so as I still have some fabulous work to show you from my Experimental Textiles group and a class I taught at Denman College earlier this month.

The workshop for the Cotswolds Guild was A New Starting Point - combining the heaviest iron-on interfacing S133 with layers of torn newspaper, painted Bondaweb and all kind of glitz. Using the heavy interfacing as a backing the decorated samples can be cut to shape with a die cutting machine.


Brooch blanks cut from this sample.

Some of the layered samples before they were cut to shape


 . . .  and here are some of the layered samples before and after they were cut to shape.






Faux chenille is also a part of this workshop, it always amazes me just how much can be achieved on a one day workshop.
We had a great day playing with newspaper, Bondaweb, glitter and gilding flake and the group went home with plenty of blank shapes to make jewellery and other embellishments with.


To see what else the Cotswold Guild have been up to this year - have a look at their

I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and healthy and creative New Year.
