Klimt Workshop with Wendy Dolan

Fourteen of us met at Goodworth Clatford Village Club last Saturday (23 November) for a very enjoyable workshop given by Wendy Dolan.  Inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt, Wendy took us through the process of creating our own masterpieces!

We started by drawing our design on paper, then moved on to working with silk and organza.  

Starting on the back of the fabric, we stitched the basic outline of our designs. 

Next we turned the fabric over to continue working on the front.  

Equipped with soldering irons, we cut back layers of organza and then added silver and gold foil to enhance our designs.

We didn't have time to complete our stitching on the day, but hopefully we will be able to display our finished masterpieces at the Christmas party!

Many thanks go to Wendy for such a super workshop, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learnt many new skills.

Some of our work in progress!!
