Sandra Meech workshop

I recently attended a workshop led by Sandra Meech.  We had to take photos with us that were in colour and copies we had made of the same photos as black and white drawings.  I used Picasa to change mine as I don't have photo elements.

Here's an example of what I took with me.  This is at Kingswood Junction on the Stratford Canal.

We started by painting some of our black and white photos with Brusho.  We also monoprinted with textured wallpaper.

Then we each made a black and white collage and a colour collage.

The collages have been photographed and will be printed onto transfer paper ready to iron onto fabric.  The paper collages can also be put on fabric as they are, and sewn into.

In addition we were given a piece of the transfer paper to drawn on and paint.  This is my painted paper.

Which looks like this ironed onto the fabric. I feel this is a bit dark so I will either sew light threads into it or put a sheer fabric over it to knock it back.

This is the transfer paper after ironing which I can collage with.

You can find out more about Sandra's techniques in her book Connecting Design to Stitch.

There's lots of things to do from this workshop.  I hope to share the results with you sometime.  I have now started Module 2 of the Master Practitioner course and plan to use the ideas I learnt here in that work.

Thanks for joining me today.
