Diffusion Festival Embroidered Photographs Workshop
Last weekend I led an embroidered photographs workshop at Chapter Art Centre in Cardiff as a part of the Diffusion photography festival. It was an enjoyable day with two groups of participants bringing their own twists to the workshops.
I had provided a number of patterns based upon some creative commons licensed images that I had sourced for the workshop. Those taking part used these as test pieces to get a feel for how you might go about embroidering onto a photograph. Having explored some of the techniques used the participants took their needle and threads to some of their own images.
It was great to see that most all of the participants expanded upon on the original patterns that were provided to create some unique patterns and embellishments.
