Yesterday it was paper from embroidery school, today it's cloth, embroidery, samples. You've pretty much got a broad overview now of what's happening in my latest class. What you don't have is any idea of the wonderful work being created by the group, the innovation, the enquiry, the testing, the pushing of ideas that is being created by the others. All I can say is look at this work and then multiply my paltry talents by a million percent and you will be nearly there such is the level of their creativity.
Having said that....I am happy with my efforts too. I gathered these pieces together for these photographs and there is a lovely ''weight'' to these when they are laid over each other. Lifting up a corner to peek at what's beneath is very satisfying. In isolation these pieces aren't ''all that''....put them together however and the sense of an evolving body of work is there. I must remind myself to do that more often with sampling, to consider pieces as a collection rather than individual works.
