This project I started a while ago but came to a stop for whatever reason ....I have to make the last quarter of the flower then I am either going to mount it as a wall hanging or put each one in a separate frame .....any thoughts??? the flower sections are done in layers 1st layer dye on cotton 2nd pieces of fabric stuck on with pritt stick 3rd cut up pieces of fabric gold and sparkly sprinkled in places 4th organza layered over the top 5th machine stitched to show shape of petals 6th hand stitching mainly French knots which is one of my favourite stitches (along with lazy daisy) I made the first one as an example for my pupils to try experimenting then got carried away .........as you do !!! x
I am a qualified Textile Teacher but now I am lucky enough to follow my dream being a full time Textile Artist and I love every minute I spend creating in my studio at The West Wing. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
I run workshops for schools, colleges and groups.
I work 1 to 1 with individuals who might want help with basic sewing or more advanced techniques.
Commissions are always welcome please get in touch with me to discuss your requirements. No textile job is too small .....:)
I sell my work through Etsy and you can find me on Facebook at Artymess Textile Art ...come and say hello.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
