Margaret Beal Day2
Another brilliant day with Margaret Beal. Here she is discussing a student's work which she did regularly throughout the day. I'm sorry I was too busy to take good photos, most of them are very hurried and not very good quality.
This morning we used the waste strips from yesterday in many different ways and here I used mine to join some of the strips I made at home last night. I don't seem to be able to take good photos of purple colours for some reason. The felt base here is a nice purple.
Then we were shown how to make marks using the soldering iron using small bits of various colours sandwiched between two pieces of nylon organza on a piece of felt. When we had done that we cut out shapes, bonded more organza to back the holes, then made frames and used them to decorate the same piece of work. Here is my effort.
To finish off this afternoon we used our sewing machines for the first time to make some reverse applique. I have an unfinished piece of work here, but I will show some more of my work in a few days perhaps when I complete them.
There are some more images on the SerenTex blog.
