Pebbling - stage 2, 3, 4

Pebbling - stage 3
Dimensional chiffon - stitched, printed and painted with real copper

Fire Lace - stage 1 and 2.

Two sleeps until set up at the Britannia Mine Museum for the "Unearthed"show.

Have heat processed more than 90 yards of fabric for the show and invented a few new techniques including a "fire lace" and a layered metallic dressing for very dimensional pebble work. Have dug up some of the fabrics from under the earth and have nearly completed the ammonia and copper dips.

Filling up the cases again and thinking about light and hanging devices. Looking forward to see what it all looks like in the midst of the old mine equipment and ancient rafters.

Two more sleeps.

I am looking through eye drops so I hope these photos are in focus a little.
