Travelling on 2016.......

Travelling on..............

We move forward as a group into our fifth year with the challenges of working our pieces in series at A2 size. The working theme for this year is 'Treasures'; we will be producing four pieces in total over the year.

As an added challenge this year a number of the group have prepared work for a group exhibit at the Taiwan International Show in 2016.

Our main exhibition this year will be in Prague in April where the 'Nature Abstracted ' series will be shown; we hope these pieces will travel across the water for an exhibition in Minneapolis, USA in June.

One of the aerial views I wanted to do was a glacier. A diffcult one, but the pounded fabric I created last month was the perfec starting point. I unrolled and split a cotton ball and added this to add a bit more white to the quilt. Covered everything with a black tulle and stitched through it. This is how it turned out:


  1. OOOOO I love this one! The overlay of the black tulle tones down the super white of the cotton ball just enough. Great look.

  2. Looking at an enlarged version, by right clicking the mouse on the image, I was able to see much more clearly the stitching, which really makes the piece resemble an aerial shot of a glacier. A clever idea, Wil. Do I assume that pounded fabric is the same as felted? Very dramatic piece, I like it very much. Elaine.

  3. No Elaine, pounded fabric is not like felted fabric. Check out my blog post of April 29.

  4. Looks Great Will, as Elaine said - very dramatic. I too will have to check your blog to see what pounded fabric is! And thanks for the tip Elaine - about getting the enlarged image!

  5. I love this Wil, your use of different dying techniques is so exciting!
