We have finished our first Handwork Circle collaborative project! It is on display at Local Cloth Studio, 408 Depot St, Asheville NC. Note the circle!! Also, can you find the brillig and the slithy toves? [Jabberwocky, by LEWIS CARROLL, " ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves " ] They are thanks to Rebecca Norris, the literary type. These and all the other elements are interwoven into a piece that was created impromptu as we passed it from one to another and let it speak to us individually.
Google us at Local Cloth Handwork Circle to see blogs about our activity (or scroll through the blogs).
Our second project is just beginning if you want to join in (email Susette Shiver).
The Handwork Circle piece on display at Local Cloth (at the back on the left of the studio). The participants are embroidered around the edges.
Susette is showing Judi Jetson elements of the piece.
This is an ongoing piece that will be finished when our new project is finished!! The v-handwork group had the idea it would be fun to start a project that would be handed off in turns to all who wanted to join. I started off by giving Carolyn Morrison some hand dyed linen pieces left from my previous projects.
