THE WALL HANGING -DETAILS

This wall hanging is designed to fit a specific space above a stairwell.

Over the next few days I will post some of the detail of the work.

Firstly – here is one of the freeform spirals before being incorporated.  This is worked in two soft yarns of differing weights to give a variation in texture as well as colour.

EVENING CLASS AT FORFAR ACADEMY 2015/16

I always encourage learners to keep all their first attempts at learning.

Firstly because people learn a lot from their mistakes, so having the mistake in hand at that “how did I sort this one out last time?”moment really helps jog the memory.  Secondly, because it is such an encouragement to see how far you have come.

I asked the students to bring all stages of their work in at the end of the course to show off their progress.  Here are some photographs of the work they produced.  Thank you for allowing me to use your photos, and my apologies for not getting them posted sooner.
