From Print to Stencil to Stitch!
In the third week of sessions with Life Matters and the Booth Centre, we began to stitch. The beautiful mono-printed line drawings had been transferred onto lovely creamy calico using stencils cut from acetate prints. The participants then began to explore embroidery stitches, adding colour and detail to their work. The response to the stitching element of the session was very positive, people who had never sewn before were surprised how quickly they could pick up the skill.
Over at the Mustard Tree, we had some new people taking part in the session. Some fantastic mono-prints were created and the participants were really enthusiastic about having their artwork exhibited.
