First Cut Exhibition, Manchester

Finally made it over to Manchester to see this exhibition, and I was not disappointed. The work on exhibition varied from tiny pieces to ones that filled the wall.


Stitched Collage Workshop

We have had a lovely day creating some stitched collage boxes. This is one of the workshops I have on offer where working with paper we re-cycle and create something new.

Starting with collaging paper, machine stitching and hand embroidery the boxes began to emerge.

Here are 2 of the finished boxes, box 3 to come later...

New series of work

This is a series of work that I have been working on that builds on one of my themes 'Journeys'. The main background is an old postcard and I have still used maps, papers and fabric to create the collage. Machine embroidery is still the tool that I use to draw with. In addition I have added hand embroidery, buttons (from my mums button tin) and on some typed text.
