A Path to the Beach

Hi everyone

This post has some awesome eye candy.

From 31 May to 1 June the Guild ran a workshop led by the wonderful Glenys Leske from South Australia.

The aim was to create this delicate and lovely scene called Path to the Beach. It’s a richly layered and textured design.

Over the coming weeks we hope to share some of the finished projects with you. The participants in the workshop have all added their own touch to the design.

We’re going to start today with Pat Bootland’s finished piece. Pat has very generously allowed her work to be photographed before it was framed – you can see the basting around the edges that hold the silk organza to the background  fabrics. This meant that Stewart Bath could photograph the work in all its detail.

Pat’s piece is full of exquisite stitching to create the features of this beachscape.  I love them all but I was especially taken by the simple but effective use of the frayed edges of fabric to evoke the spray of waves as they hit the beach.

Here’s the eye candy:
