Richard Box Workshop.
A visit to Merseyside
In August, Mary and I spent an enjoyable day with members of the Merseyside branch for a workshop with Richard Box.
We started off in a large group with scissors and glue, a piece of hessian, and scraps of fabric.
I had the best seat in the house.
After that we went on to machine embroidery. Mary and I had a few teething problems with the embroidery feet
But finally ,success!
After that we began hand stitching
Some of the glued bits weren't easy to get the needle through.
Here is a completed version of a similar piece.
At the end of the afternoon we had a show and tell, and a chance to buy kits and D.V.Ds
