Wednesday's edition of 'Talking Threads' showed Fay Maxwell demonstrating a 'slashing' technique, very similar to a combination of Chenille Applique and the multi coloured ripple effect. It was interesting to see how she put the technique to use. It would be lovely to have more time to experiment with some of these methods.
On Saturday a group of us went to a talk by Michael Brennand-Wood, hosted by the Midland Textile Forum. I was aware of his work and have to admit to not being very enamoured by it, but it was interesting to hear the thought process (or 'sub-text') behind some of his work, and how a collection of work developed and evolved. I'm still not a fan, but I now have much more respect for his work.
