We held a very successful exhibition last week. Lutterworth was celebrating Feast Week and also holding various events as it’s memorial of WW1. The Guild had an exhibition of work made in honour of those who served in WW1 as part of the overall exhibition. Here I am showing you selected works and will upload some others tomorrow.
PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGES TO SEE A LARGER VIEW.
The first two are from the WW1 exhibit. In the first collage the top two images of poppies are remembering the men of Ibstock. The bottom left image was very beautiful but hard to focus on as it consisted of several layers. Bottom right was in hand made felt with appliqué additions.
The second collage of the boots was all free machine embroidery, very skillfully done. I have included a close-up.
The next image shows some of the entries for the Chairman’s Challenge this year. The top one is the winner and is a very lovely hand stitched box. I have also included a close-up. The other two images are my own selection of the rest of the entries.
There was a workshop on Permanganate and batik printing and some indigo dyeing, which are shown in the next images
The lovely teddies below are made from old embroidered tablecloths.
I love the bright clear colours in the patchworks below too.
I also like this little velvet picture with it’s beading.
more images later.
Thanks for sharing these Dorothy, I would have visited if I was nearer.
Thanks. I am just about to upload the last batch. Shame you aren’t nearer.
Yes, a great shame. Hope you can manage to come to our weekend when I finally hear back from them……. Just about to email again…..
Lovely pictures Dorothy, beautiful work
