One piece per member of work, completed in the last 6 months. The name of the maker, the title of the piece and a description including inspiration and technique should be supplied.
The piece was made as a response to a walk on a summers day on the
Somerset Levels; the flowers were meadow sweet and vetch and the sheet of colour was wonderful. Painted calico was layered with fine silks and then embroidered with machine and hand embroidery.
An interpretation of Monet’s painting of S. Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. It is a combination of techniques: patchwork with painted scrim and silk crêpeline, stitched, then layered with chiffons of different colours.
