Last night I was invited to deliver my Tyvek Leaf Workshop to 24 creative ladies from the Louth Textile Group who meet once a month at the Conoco Rooms above Louth Library. Time was going to be a little tight with 24 participants and less than two hours to make our leaves but all of the ladies rose to the challenge knowing that they would have to complete their project at home.
We began by colouring our Tyvek using our chosen medium, either felt markers, fabric paint, acrylics or watercolours. While this was drying the ladies made their wire leaf framework.
Every leaf was a different shape and there were some interesting colour schemes taking place………
It was a fun night which went all too quickly…..I wish I had made the time to take more (and better) photos! With no time at the end for a “show and tell” I’m hoping to receive images of the finished work, complete with stitching and beading, when the group meet again next month.
Many thanks to all the ladies for making feel so welcome.
