Albany Summer School – Textile Class

After a relax and sightseeing some of the beautiful coastline around Albany it’s back to work for the second week of the Albany Summer School. I am teaching a two day comprehensive class on techniques with free machine embroidery. It was good to see the students exploring layers and textures with a variety of fabrics and yarns.IMG_0715   IMG_0716

We used a hot soldering iron to burn away small sections of fabric to reveal glimpses of fabric underneath.

We made a fabric using threads, fabric scraps and a water soluble fabric. One student formed her work into a vessel.
