Latest work

Been currently working on my latest piece of work for the Textile 21 exhibition in October.
 At the moment it is totally white silk. Both the fabric and thread used.

 It is called Effervescence II and is a development of my silk organza toile that formed part of the "Fashioned in Silk" exhibition of last year.

 The circles are the basis of this design and as they overlap they allowed me to develop layers that each display different techniques

I will cut away the outside of the design and then dye with procion dyes so that it will fulfil the brief of the exhibition and be Created in Colour.

Here I am free machine embroidering one of the circles.
