12th June 2010 - Amanda Clayton

Sutton Coldfield Creative Stitchers were very fortunate on Saturday to have a visit from Amanda Clayton. Her workshop was called CELEBRATION OF CLOTH IN A NEUTRAL PALETTE. We were not sure what to expect, as the list of materials needed was a little bizarre and included rice, pebbles, herbs and glass!
We had an amazing day, Amanda took us on an incredible 'learning journey' where we were all encouraged to create transparent hangings appliqued with shapes sketched from objects in her collection. Amanda encouraged us to think about methods of applying shape, division of space, joining and fastening and to consider edges, hems and boundaries of our work.
It most definately gave us a lot to think about!
