|Whole picture of Waterlilies by Monet|
|Close up of part of Waterlilies|
When all 20 pieces are finished the painting will be put back together again to produce our embroidered version of Waterlilies.
Members worked on the background first and then applied stitch.
Backgrounds were made from wet felt, embellishing, painting, markal, sheers and a combination of some of these techniques. Stitch was then applied to enhance the surface and /or modify the background colour.
All rectangles are at the "needing to be finished stage"and over the next few weeks members will complete their pieces and we are all waiting to see what the final piece looks like when reassembled.
A big thank you to Joanna for sorting out the picture in advance and then leading the workshop on the day.
One of the rectangles has been completed.
Can you tell which is the textile piece???????
Only 19 more pieces to go!
