Our December meeting was our annual master class and Ann Marie Cadman led us in a fabulously creative and challenging day.
We were treated to a closeup look at Ann Marie's work and were wowed by multi layered abstract art textiles.
We enjoyed a demonstration of the techniques we could use and the order in which they were likely to be most effective before we were let loose to be creative.
Some of us worked on a small sample to start with just to get the idea of what we could do.
Here are three stages in my first sample. Proof that it's not an easy way to create a fabric surface and that a great deal of practice is needed!
We had the shortest stop for lunch ever, as we were all keen to get to most out of the day as we could. Ann Marie was a very generous tutor, full of suggestions to keep us on track and with ideas for coping with mistakes too.
These are some images of what we were working on towards the end of the day.
