2011 Scarf Festival

July 10, 2011 at 12:39 am 3 comments

Just had to post about Claudia who decided to design and make a scarf for entry into the Scarf Festival currently held annually at the National Wool Museum in Geelong. It was so nice to see her excitement at receiving a Highly Commended award at the Opening Night Ceremony. Great job Claudi!!

I have been quietly beavering away at some stumpwork embroidery. I am hoping to post some finished pieces next week, now I am on school holidays. The long term aim is to make a casket but for now I will do some small pieces for the Intermediate certificate I am doing with Alison Cole through the Embroiderer’s Guild. I couldn’t resist Alison’s latest beautiful book full of her gorgeous embroidery.

Our Creative textiles group (now renamed Gee TAG-for Geelong Textile Arts Group) has been working on linocutting and printing. This is a print of the two linocuts I made during our meeting:

and then Pauline’s which has been printed out for everyone in our group as a challlenge. It will be interesting to see how differently they all turn out.



Entry filed under: Embroiderer's Guild, linocuts, stumpwork.

    That is a really original scarf and deserves its Highly Commended. I checked out Alison Cole’s gallery, what lovely pieces. Thank you for the link. Love your linocuts and look forward to seeing what you do with them, and the challenge piece.

    I love the scarf too! I also happen to be interested in your lovely lino cuts as I intend to try and sketch and simplify plants while I’m at Plas, not for lino cuts but machine embroidery!
