Owlfred Continuance with Hazel Blomkamp from South Africa
Monday 3rd & Tuesday 4th July
This workshop is continuance only, students will need to have commenced this workshop on Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd July. (Workshop number 6)
Owlfred is an unconventional take on a common bird of prey inspired by a painting of an owl made of metal spare parts and a clock face tummy seen in an art gallery window. Using space-dyed Chameleon threads, DMC cottons and metallics, Miyuki beads and Czechoslovakian flat back crystals, this project uses a huge variety of stitches as under:
- Bead embroidery: 4 techniques
- Crewel embroidery: 29 stitches
- Needle Lace embroidery: 3 techniques
- Needle Weaving: 5 patterns
Measuring 360 x 200 mm, it is a large but interesting and fun project that will keep you busy for a while. Once finished and framed it will deserve pride of place on any wall.
Skill level: Continuance only. This project is not for beginners but stitchers with an intermediate to advanced knowledge of embroidery will not only enjoy the project, but are likely to add to their stitch and techniques repertoire when doing the workshop.
Kit cost: There will be no kit cost as students will already have the kit
