A nice surprise.

It was a surprise to be asked by Alma Stoller to be part of her Stitched workshops which starts in  January 2012 .She had been reading the blog and suggested that a focus for the workshop should be mark making with stitch, and as this is the way I usually embroider I was pleased to take up her suggestion.
I decided on a project using monoprint and stitch, to make a panel suitable as a bag front, a cushion/pillow front or as a picture added to a canvas panel.
Access to the video workshops is over six months, so I am looking forward to dipping in and out of the varied textile art sessions. I find this by far the best way to learn and have taken a few classes this year, as well as obsessively watching Encaustic DVDs and demonstrations.

 I’m sure there will be more encaustic experiments in 2012 and I really must do some more felting.

 So much to look ahead to, and no doubt I will get even more and varied inspiration from the Stitched workshops.

I wish you all the best for the Christmas season and lots of creative inspiration for 2012.
