Certificate 1V Textile Students

Ricci is one of my Certificate 1V Textile students - working on one of her finial pieces
You will have to wait until next year in late March to see the finished works at Pepper Street Gallery here in Adelaide when they exhibit their work

More Embellishment

Braids and fringes
From my students in their embellishment course
The students have to experiment with different materials to make creative braids and fringes
I think these are great - now how could they use them in their finished works????
The below samplers are by Lousie Frances
