Well it has been so long since I blogged that there really are no excuses… so I will just start from here!

I have been enjoying a series of Collage workshops with Donna Downey so I thought I would share those here.  We are at number 10 of the series now. Clicking on the image will enlarge as usual.

Week 10

I have enjoyed learning new techniqiues, not always successful in my hands of course. However, all learning is fun isn’t it?


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.


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.

2014-08-12 Luuerworth EG Exhibition

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.








Today I want to share some of my own work from day 2 of the workshop.

If only it hadn’t been so hot, it would have been really fun. ( just kidding. it was anyway. )

Here the top two images are made over black and white wrapping paper. Bottom left is on some thick paper with flecks of gold in it and bottom right is the back of an image that had previously been an unsuccessful screen print

Edits 5

Some altered stencilled, gelli printed images.

Edits 6   Edits 7

In the folloing image, the one on the right  is a failed screen print on fabric, which has been overdyed and stencilled. The right hand  one is a monoprint which has been over dyed and paint with a thin glaze of gold acrylic which doesn’t show in the photo.

Edits 8

Two sketchbook pages are next. The bottom one is another sparkly one in the right light.

Edits 9

Bottom is another sketchbook page which has bee worked over with layers of dye and stencils
