Spending a day teaching others in new ways to work with textiles can be both educationsl and inspiring. That is what happened this last Saturday when I taught a group of ladies from the Brighton Embroiders Guild. We spent the day investigating various ways of working with dissolvable papers, bona web, lutradure, fibretex, tyvec, etc. This was scheduled to help prepare members of the club to make inspirational textile pieces with unusual textiles and materials in preparation for the month long Brighton Arts Festival next May. We layered, painted, burned and stitched away during the day. The resulting group were excited about new techniques available to them with their work with textiles. Their samples were great. I can’t wait to see what they will produce in the future.
