There were upwards of a dozen of us. Catherine had provided us with all the materials and equipment we needed. We each had an identical "starter pack" of fabrics and there was a huge pile of threads to choose from. We were using a photograph of cranberry fields as inspiration and although there were many unfinished pieces it was clear that despite working from the same source and using identical fabrics they were all going to be completely different.
I'm not going to show the techniques as I learned them in the workshop because that would be a violation of copyright, but this is what I came home with:
Here it is, mangled and ready for another layer of stitching.
and here's the back.
I remembered the cranberries from the original source photograph, so I've just made some felt beads.
There should be some progress to post in a couple of days - when I've had some fun with it!
