Details above and below, showing her fabric with paint ,
stitch,applied cords and sparkles.It will be really interesting to see these alongside their inspiration.
At UWE this coming weekend Ira will be demonstrating one of her favourite techniques,simple print and stitch
Here she has prepared some samples,both use the same hand made print block
but look quite different one from the other.
The choice of colour and stitch technique offer a variety that plays to the creative mind.She uses acrylic paints,the bottom example has metallic copper which adds another dimension.
In this piece she has used a marbling technique on the papers before adding them to a background fabric ,then she has commenced to build up the surface with lots and lots of stitch.
