Announcing the Friends of Rock Road Library’s Wednesday Textile Group led by Veronica Thornton.
Term starts Wednesday 11th September (finishing on Wednesday 11th December) – weekly, 10 a.m. to 12 noon in Rock Road Library’s Community Room.
We will be working on a project for Camsight which will involve different fabric texture techniques. Also we have been asked to make another piece for the library, and finally if anyone wants to work on individual pieces that is fine. For the first few weeks, I would like to focus on different texture techniques; cut and slash!, trapunto!! smocking, pleating, weaving like rag rugs etc. Each week we may try a new technique if you are in agreement? We can produce samples that can then be combined for display at Camsight. For the first week I will show a power point of images to explain the variety of techniques and approaches, also I will bring in some samples to show you. If you have any samples of textured textiles please bring them, also welcome are your ideas!
