sample #4

The next sample for my City & Guilds course is about completed. It includes a cornucopia of techniques. Stitching (those seed stitches continue to be my favourite); transfer printing; applique; dyeing; painted bondaweb.
I'm using the motif of a labyrinth, loosely based on the one I visited at Alkborough....though that one is a much more complex shape.
And I have some silk currently in a dye-bath I made up from cow parsley. It's come out a lovely yellow; though I'm not sure how deep the colour will be when I take the fabric out. The alchemical kitchen was in full swing last week!
