Class with Lesley Turpin-Delport


The classes I took at the Bath Textile Summer School were held at the Holburne Museum. 
I chose Lesley Turpin-Delport's class for the first two day session. Red tulips often show up in my work so I thought her class of 3-D stitching techniques would be great fun. I wasn't disappointed. 

Here is my work after 2 days. OK maybe it was too much fun and I didn't get as much finished as I should have!

First we transferred the image to the background fabric.  

Then we set to work bringing the image to life using a great kit of threads and yarns. Lesley shared many helpful stitching and design ideas.

 Best of all, her new book, co-authored with her daughter Nikki, was released that week. We got to see actual stitched samples from the book! They are as delicious as the title suggests. 
And by the end of the week copies arrived to purchase at the Saturday Textile Fair.
