A small but very select group of students met at the village hall in Marsh Bladon, Oxford, to enjoy a day of stitching with inspiration provided by the exciting images of the Swiss artist Hundertwasser.
We spent the first hour making a simple plan in colour on paper describing an imaginary or well known street. The rest of the day was spent building a colourful image with fabric and thread using the colour palette and simple shapes and lines that this inspiring artist shows in his paintings. Everyone ended up with a small textile set up in preparation for many hours of enjoyable stitching to embelish their imagined place.
Thank you to the Oxford branch of Embroiderers’ Guild for an enjoyable day.
