Textile Painting

Both Ann and Sue came into the Textile Tuesday
sessions over the last few weeks, just wanting
to paint fabric!
So in my usual fashion set them to work
with all the equipment and some tips
and hints and set them to play and explore
the medium!
He! He!
I love it when people play!
I get them to have an inspiration
first, either with a physical object in front
of them or a memory that they want to capture.
Sue wanted to express the fields of
anemones she had seen next to a wood in France.
She had also made an Embellished piece
inspired by this.
See this
The start is there and she had a wonderful time!
I am sure he is singing in the bottom photo!
So, so, happy to be creating!
Ann's piece based on a Blue Poppy is really
coming on, it has been painted, shadows and textures
added, the petals cut out with a soldering iron and also
added holes for texture and depth.
The background is now coming together
with added paint,rubbings, printing and threads.
As you can see it will be a stunning piece.
See how Ann started this piece
There are so many possibilities and I love sharing
the techniques of textiles and art.
There will be more opportunity soon
with the move to the new Art Centre at
The Memorial Hall Dereham in December.
