This was a prelude to the workshop on Saturday, where we learned that the "crazy" relates, not to the state of mind of those participating, but to the crazed glaze on the Japanese porcelain,which was all the rage in Victorian times.
Our morning was spent choosing materials and colour combinations and placing them on the base material. We found that it is a far from random task and quite demanding. Silence reigned for much of the time! After lunch the really fun part began with the embellishment of the pieces, using a variety of stitches in different threads, adding ribbon, lace, buttons and beads. Quite a lot of progress was made and all agreed that it had been a most enjoyable day and that our pieces were NOT destined to become UFOs.
I hope to receive some photos of completed pieces, that I can add later.
