A new journey

This year, for the first time, I am taking part in #septtextilelove arranged by @seam_collective on Instagram.  You can find me on IG at @msbernice7 

The topic for day 10 was Risk.  I put that I was considering launching myself into giving talks and workshops and had so much positive encouragement from my post, that I was convinced that it is the right thing to do.   I was already booked to do a workshop locally and here are some of the results.

We worked through my Venice Tiles workshop, firstly printing fabric.

A couple of the ladies had to leave early so I only have these almost finished pieces.  The fabric is ready to be mounted onto a 20cm square canvas once the ladies have finished adding stitch.

The day was about process and technique rather than completing a finished piece.  To be honest, when they think about it they may not like the piece they've made but they have all the skills to make it again and make it their own.  Which is what I think it's all about.

You may not have noticed but at the top of this blog there are now links to the talks, workshops and Exploring Creativity courses I am offering.

I am asking for my fees to be paid as a donation to Jubilee Solihull Community Trust where a team of wonderful people run a children's clothing bank: Jubilee Children's Storehouse.  You can find information about the weekly clothing needs and how many children are clothed each week on their Facebook page.

Thanks for joining me today
