I have just spent a most enjoyable weekend workshop learning all sorts of techniques with Isobel Hall who is a very talented lady. I already had her book ‘BAGS with Paper and Stitch’ which has an unbelievable variety of techniques and I knew I just had to send my name in very quickly to have a place on this clever lady’s course. The course was based on the use of Light Molding Paste, but it was much more than that and covered many techniques and clever little tips that will always come in useful. I thought the photo above is such a lovely one of her I just had to post it.
Here are some samples of the work I did on the course. There will be more to see on Croesew, the North Wales embroiderers’ Guild blog later on.
A big bonus was sitting between two good and very creative friends, Miriam Forder and Carol McFee.
I came away having bought her other two books as well, the latest co-authored with Maggie (Grey) and called ‘Mixed Media: New studio Techniques’ and Isobel’s previous book ‘Embroidered Books’. All three are well worth having in your library. Isobel will be at
