The first workshop was Celtic Design.
We spent the morning learning about how to design and then making two of our own.
We made our designs on 1/8 of a square then traced by folding the greaseproof paper.
Here are some of the students designs
Here are some of Angela's Designs
Day two - Beautiful Blooms
To learn Angela's technique of raw edge applique we all completed a simple tulip
A couple of us then started on an Iris
Day Three - Decorative Edges
Today we made samples of some of Angela's decorative edge techniques
These are some of Angela's samples
And here are some of ours
