New Term Creative Embroidery 6 Jan 2018 (Creative Embroidery Group) A short silk strip weaving project followed by a project based on Matisse's Still Life paintings

We will be starting the term with a 2 week project using shiny Indian scarves and silk habutai with ribbons and tapes to weave a basis for some stitching and will produce a small piece suitable for various uses includind as a cushion front or a bag front.

We will then move onto the main project for the term which is to use Matisse's portraits and still lives as inspiration, find an object such as a pot or vase we love and make a piece based on this, filled with flowers or in conjunction with other objects and memories using a variety of techniques incuding piecing, appliqué, stitch and couching.

We are a diverse group of all abilities and can all be supported as needed.

Techniques and stitches are described and demonstrated and help is given where required with design ideas
