My workshop

I taught a workshop last week to a local called Itchy fingers textiles. They are a really remarkable set of ladies who have all met through City and Guilds. I decided to do a workshop called beautiful bills as I have been playing with the insides of security envelopes. But before all this I like to incorporate a bit of design as I know many have fear of how to design and what to do. So I started with a bit of a freeing exercise and got them to tear things they like from magazines and glue them quickly together as a bit of a mood board - nothing new there but think it gives a chance for people to be free. They are having an exhibition in the summer (I think???) - entitled "HOME" and so we looked at interior magazines. This was my example.....
I then got carried away with fashion - well it lives in my home and I LURVE it!!!!!!!
Can you tel I have complete shoe lust!!!!!!!

Can't tell you how much I want those shoes!!!!!!! anyone got a spare £600

I did this on the day.
So to move it on we made some sketches, these were mine......

Love the one above with a passion.




and that was design.... I will post some of my samples later in the week

the bottom one is my favourite. Looks like it was fun though, freeing up and loosening is a good thing. I learned that at C&G many moons ago, still can't do it myself though...
