Remember Dorinda and the Ganesh wallhangings ???....
Decided to imortalise Dorinda...I have a vision that this will be a textured embroidered piece for my textile show in October thought I'd have a circus /fairground theme .......even thought I might have jugglers... fire eaters at the private view .....mmmm maybe not with all that fabric around .... Progress on Ganesh wallhangings.... The wallhangings 'hangin' in the playground to dry.... They are now in the second stage.... the children have batiked the edges( look at the video how confident they were at batiking the edges they are only 10 ...thought they did brilliantly for 1st time at using a tjanting) and used coloured dyes for the borders the next step is shisha mirror work and tassels .......will make the shisha stitch a bit simpler for 10 yr olds though ......xx
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 .....
