I have worked alongside the participants, and started with a small counted thread piece which I brought back from Dubrovnik.
Initially each person chose a textile, used words to describe them before making some quick sketches.
We then worked with twigs, sponges, feathers etc. making marks using Indian Ink.
The next session was used to colour varied papers, such as brown paper, greaseproof, magazine pages etc... We then looked at ways of making stamps to transfer the designs from the initial doodles and mark making.
This is my final design.
