Paper making workshop Tixall Stafford

Had a lovely paper making day last Saturday 14th August, we made a variety of papers from recycled papers and fabrics and foliage, I demonstrated how to mix colours on the deckle and how to couch multicoloured papers, the results were great. Here are some work in progress photos.

In the afternoon we made some silk paper sheets and then some silk paper vessels.

This vessel has silk chiffon fabric to add design, silk and  hemp to add texture.

Tea Cosies

Hi Been busy making Egg Cosies, Tea Cosies and Coffee Cosies, they are machine embroidered with my trade mark birds on them, but this time they are in a cage, the Tree of Life fabric, I love, it was given to me, it is really yummy cloth, top quality soft furnishing quality, linen and cotton mix I think. They have one side tree of life fabric and one side with a bird in cage embroidered on it, I may make some with a bird in a tree embroidered on them with tree of life leaves.
