Fragments Workshop with Lynda Monk

What an inspiring Saturday we had on 22 April 2017 at Goodworth Clatford Village Club!  Having invited Lynda Monk to speak to us last year, we were all very excited at the prospect of her coming back to give us a workshop.

Lynda brought some beautiful examples of her work to show us and to whet our appetites for what was to come.

We learnt how to work with lutradur and thermofax screens, using Xpanda paste and gel medium and we all managed to produce some wonderful results.

As we became more confident, we had the opportunity to experiment on different surfaces, including velvet, scrim and paper.

We worked with plain and coloured fabrics and used Lynda's heat press to create some shimmering effects with foils.

The last thing Lynda showed us was how to make lutradur flowers. Although we didn't have time to finish them on the day, I'm sure if we all work hard, we will have some beautiful examples to show everyone at our next meeting.

Many thanks, Lynda, for a very inspiring day. You showed us a whole variety of techniques and filled us with enthusiasm.
