A front cover for a book we are putting together over in artist book class. There's a very long strip of embroidered silk and lace, a textured and embroidered watercolour paper base, embellished with French knots and tiny white beads which is laid here alongside paper fragments which when stitched will compliment and enhance the inside of the cover.
This cover will be complete before the pages. There are overlays to be made yet, soft, sheer pieces which will protect the embroidered pages that will live inside this cover. So, quite a long way to go before you see this one completely finished. I need to set aside a day next week, an overlay day to play with lace cloth and delicate paper. Here's hoping.
I have one spare workshop kit remaining from last weeks London class. If you are interested in purchasing that please get in touch. You can read about it here and get an idea of what little pieces of embroidery related things are inside. The pocket itself is completely hand made. The cost is 35 GBP plus postage costs. (SOLD. Thank you)
