19 March- Deborah O'Hare- 'Tales from the Scrap Bag'
A fascinating talk & ideas for work from literally the materials and fabrics that came from a bag of bits & pieces- I am sure we all have plenty of these! Whilst Deborah's passion has developed along the patchwork route I think she really enjoyed the 'challenge' of talking to the embroidery ladies as oppose to patchworkers. She then talked us through how she adapted her work and the commercial links she has now has, as well as featuring in a series of publications.
On the following day a number of ladies enjoyed Deborah's workshop on ' Striped Pieced Landscape' where we followed a patchwork theme but created our own designs, with often not a straight edge in sight & incorporated some other different fabrics, which Deborah herself may explore. Our work & a note from Deborah is as below.
