A few weeks ago, we welcomed Emily to Halifax for a workshop.
All equipment including dyes/inks/bleaches/materials were provided by Emily. We started off with dyeing strips of material and making marks using inks/bleaches/paints.
Everyone enjoyed making marks – I think it took us back to our schooldays! We had to ensure these were dry before we could work on them so we worked on a small practice piece suggested by Emily’s loopy stitches, french knots and layered style.
In the afternoon the now dried pieces were given a backing, stitched together to make a wall hanging and then hand embellished using a variety of methods including hand stitching theads, beads, sequins. Emily was a very giving tutor and took time with all of us to make very helpful suggestions throughout the day.
