I have just returned from a fantastic workshop at Woodlawn, Lismore run by FibreArts. Spent five days with Cas Holmes from the UK. I have all three of her books and have long admired her works. The workshop was Unfolding Landscapes so included sketching , laying down a landscape with fabric and papers then stitching in line, detail and further images with hand and machine stitch.
This was a quick sample of paper and scrim which had been painted with black acrylic paint as a brush wiping cloth. The picture strip is a piece from an image of Margaret Olley’ house at the Tweed Gallery.
