I’ve been enjoying taking part in the Prism Textiles Virtual Collaboration this year. It’s great to meet the other artists each month on Zoom, sharing what we’ve made having a natter.
We started a new virtual collaboration, working on a piece of fabric 15cm wide. For the first month we had to choose three techniques from herringbone stitch, bleaching, working on the reverse, rusting, printing with a household object, bullion stitch, beading, folding and fly stitch.
I’ll be hosting our next meet up on Zoom where we will be showing how we have incorporated the second set of techniques. We have to choose three techniques from wrapping, collage, making holes, chain stitch, lace which can be found or handmade, gold leaf, tailor tacks, drawn thread work and English paper piecing.
I’m trying to stick to one technique that I know and two that I don’t use in my own work. It’s very challenging, especially in my minimalist style. I’m exploring my new ideas for the month two, it’s fun to work with the prompts and challenge myself more.
