Simple Landscapes - 25th March 2017

After her talk "My Story in Stitch" on Friday evening, Helen Sargent followed up with a very interesting and relaxing workshop. We were shown all sorts of methods for creating a simple landscape using various media and methods. These involved tracing or direct computer printing, paints or material pieces, hand or machine sewing. We were a small group and, with freedom of choice, we all chose differently! We all went away with works in progress - see below- and I am hoping that, later in the year, I can add photos of completed pieces.

            Maureen opted for appliqu├ęd material, paint and machine stitching.

....as far as we got....
