The ‘Old Window’

May 11 @ 10:00 - 16:00
The Cosy Cabin,
The Risby Barns, South Street, Risby, Suffolk IP28 6QU United Kingdom

This is a brand new workshop with Linda, where she has created this lovely piece called ‘Old Window’. In Linda’s words:-

‘This piece is based on a photograph taken in Italy: I was attracted by the dilapidated, broken shutter, the peeling plaster yet the vibrant, fresh flowers in the window box’.

The piece is created with free motion embroidery, subtle colouring with water-based colouring pencils and applique.
