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.
Last week we had a wonderful workshop with Maggie Smith. Get Plastered was the title and we certainly did. A nice slow, steady workshop working at our own pace made it really enjoyable and we were still all shattered at the end of the day. Maggie showed us how to apply our plaster and then work into it to get patterns and designs onto it. Later, we painted the now dry plaster achieving some really nice pieces to display in our exhibition. Don't forget, Saturday 13th May and Sunday 14th May, at Ayton Village Hall from 10am to 4pm. I can guarantee you a feast of textile work.
These are some of the pieces hanging out to dry.
I think these bottles are Liz's work.
More work out to dry and a nice picture of my feet.
It's a shame you can't see the designs clearly in these pictures so you must come to the exhibition to see them properly.
