Mary Crehan Finished Piece

As promised this is the finished piece that I started on a workshop with Mary Crehan last year. It took ages to do and as her pieces are huge she must have the patience of a saint. No idea what I'm going to do with it but it was a fun day.

It was made by weaving threads and strips of fabric through scrim with added hand made paper and machine stitched all over. It was supposed to represent stone but I feel that it would be more appropriate for tree bark.

Hopefully there will be some interesting workshops when the autumn program of the Embroiderers Guild comes out so I have more to show you.

We are also hoping to have a workshop at the Hardingham Textile group with Lynda Monk later this year so that should make interesting viewing.

  1. It's really interesting to see the wonderful textures you made with such a simple stitch.
