After a successful year of creating work based on St Roberts Church and its surroundings, the Pannal Textile Group changes its theme in September 2010.

Each month an A3 page of designs, stitches and samples will be created on a background formed from fabric (this could include durable materials such as silk paper, Lutradur, pelmet vilene, Abaca tissue paper, etc).  The pages will eventually be collated into a book with a decorative cover.  Inspiration during September will be taken from Viking and Celtic design.  Each month members of the Group will progress through different periods of history eventually leading up to the present day.

As always Diane and Annie, two experienced tutors, will give demonstrations of techniques, whilst also being on hand to offer advice and assistance with page design and suitable methods of working.  There is a mix of traditional and contemporary style within the Group as well as a range of skills from beginner to the more experienced.

The above fabric swatches are the pieces of calico which were dyed during the demonstration of Procion dyeing at Pannal Textile Group during August.  Hope the rest of you have been inspired and will have a go at producing the whole range of colours suggested in the handout.  The blotchy yellow and orange pieces were coloured using the 'Space Dyeing' method.

Book cover

WIP - until the inks arrive this is as far as I can go with this project. Following some rather rude remarks from my husband I removed the stuffing from the cones and flattened them!
The back cover is based on a simple motif from one of the headstones in the churchyard.
I think I could get carried away this technique.
