Mark-making on Silk

Clear Gutta used to 'resist' water-based silk paints. 

Gutta applied with a plastic fork - a great way to re-use a plastic item!!!

Silk Screen Printing Revisited

It's been a good few years since I pulled a squeegee! However, soon got back into the swing of silk screen printing during a one day workshop facilitated by traditional printmaker Kevin Holdaway. Keeping my image very simple I produced a series of 3-colour prints on paper.
Kevin is a great instructor and I really enjoyed the day! Will definitely be making an effort to do some more printing.

Silk Gauze...pure indulgence

I've been painting some samples of silk gauze this week. Just used silk paints. Such a fine, delicate cloth to work with. I love the lustre when the sun shines on this fabric...pure indulgence.

Hoop Art Landscape

Experimenting with an applique image, inspired by a landscape photograph. To hoop or not to hoop, that it is the question!

Mark-Making and Stitch

I love to explore the relationship between mark-making and stitch. It has so many creative possibilities.

Melted Surfaces

Had fun painting, stitching and melting heat-sensitive materials.
I'm intrigued by the surfaces that can be obtained.

Images of adult students' work at the Aquinas Adult Education College exhibition last night. Well done Diana for receiving the textiles prize, although as the Principal said, "You are all winners!"
