Start by painting the background on silk with fabric paints then use various painted and coloured fabrics to construct your landscape. Bev will help you through the process concentrating on colour and aerial perspective. Complete the artwork with machine embroidery using a variety of machine stitches with interesting threads. Add close up foliage and seed heads to give an impression of distance.
Suitable for all abilities.
