Texture and detail

Katrina Williams, our extremely hard-working and dedicated volunteer, has sent me some lovely photos from last December's workshops at Trillington House, Shepherds Bush (west London). Lots of close ups of embroidery that really capture the texture and detail of the pieces - you almost forget that they are embroidery as they seem to have a life of their own. (She has also sent some pictures of the group - that show how absorbed everyone became - even those who had never done any embroidery before.)
These photos are of embroidery brought in during the sessions - that people wanted to show others (it was interesting to see the wide range of things brought in). The ecclesiastical robes from Holy Innocent's Church, Hammersmith, are dazzling. But the detail on more mundane items dazzles, too.
