City and Guilds Prep

On a Wednesdays, I am now teaching City and Guild and course Prep
for those who want to come along and try new techniques
around textiles courses.
This includes getting to know your machine,
using different materials, Photo Transfer, 3D work
Embellisher Machines and Portfolios.
Above, are pieces that I have been helping Annette with
over the last couple of weeks.
The top picture is a mixed media piece with dyed and painted
papers, materials and lace.
Water soluble flowers and voile wired and machine embroidered flowers.
The bottom picture is a photo transfer of white flowers
and bamboo arrangement with lace and mixed media embroidery.
Lots of machine free machining and beading.
Annette is a florist and is wanting to use her Machine Embroidery
within her arrangements, like 3d sculpture pieces.
I start teaching City and Guilds Machine Embroidery and
Patchwork and Quilting Level One at the end of March.

Card Making Wednesday 22nd February 2012

Kim brought in her 'Oo La la Girls' stamps and we had a wonderful
time stamping, painting and glittering these girls!
We used distress inks as the blending colours.

Embellished Flowers

The embellisher machines are out in force
at class again.
Here Chris has cut out flower petals and shapes
and has embellished them onto the
background polycotton fabric.
I love the colours!
