Student samples of free-motion stitching at a recent workshop



Some thread-sketching...

We had some fun at the workshop on Sunday in Cruthú Studio, Claregalway. A group of eager participants were introduced to a number of techniques to use in their textile work:
  • finding inspiration
  • developing ideas in sketchbooks
  • free-motion machine stitching
  • fusible appliqué
  • foil appliqué
  • soluble fabric
The above are some of the stitch samples produced, and I sincerely hope they found the class useful in helping them begin to find their own visual language so that they create unique textile artwork.
