I escaped the silly season at the weekend when I ventured over the border into Brighouse, Yorkshire and the fabulous company and studio of Anne Brookes.
The workshop was print, collage, stitch.
After settling on a colour scheme we painted and printed on papers like wallpaper, book pages, maps etc. Next up we tore up pieces and layered them up and once happy glued them down onto a paper strip.
After lunch the sewing machines came out and the fun began of stitching the strips down and finally handstitching and adding embellishments. I’ve still got some bits to do on mine but as Anne told us there’s no right or wrong to this practice and it’s finished when you want it to be finished.
Here’s what the other Christmas escapees created.
It’s fabulous how they are all so different.
The top is either attached to a wire hanger or a wooden bobbin.
