About Me

East Ayton, Scarborough, North Yorkshire
A group of ladies who enjoy traditional embroidery but who meet once a month to try some experimental work. We meet at Ayton Village Hall on the third Thursday in the month for a full day and again on the first Thursday for half a day. We currently have a waiting list of people who want to join us.

January 2015

Nearly everyone was back after the Christmas festivities and a number were ready to go colouring paper.  We used the technique I learnt with Frances Pickering, tearing each page around the previous ones to get a good fit in a book, then dipping the paper in water to wet it and then adding colour.  If you stack the pages diagonally across each other you get some interesting marks across each page.  You can add salt and layer cling film between pages for more interesting results.

I was hoping to show you some of the papers that we produced but blogger won't download my photographs, keeps saying that it cannot connect to the server.  I am trying to sort it out but it is difficult to contact them.
