The first year of City and Guilds Embroidery is all about 'Design for Craft'. This is the end result of my form project. It's a brooch! The Fimo pieces I made to hang on it represent different memories mum has of a street party for the Coronation in 1953. There's cake, a party dress, bunting, a crown and, of course, a Union Jack!
Well, the exhibition at Malvern Hills College is in full swing and, as promised, here are some more photos.
I looked at fashion illustration for my line project and ended up creating this - 'Catwalk Fashion - a collection for Spring/Summer 2009'. I must admit, I found this the trickiest project I worked on! I knew what area I wanted to look at, but had no idea what to create for my end piece. Luckily, it all evolved and came together...paper pattern, silver wire and all!
These are the pages of the altered book I created for my texture project. It took me ages to pluck up the nerve to actually cut up a book (I love books!), but once I got going, there was no stopping me. The book's all about the different textures of Venice - somewhere I'll always have special memories of (especially as this is where Mr Treasure proposed!)
