Creative Embroidery

Over the next few days SCC Art will be posting the completed creative embroideries made by members of Form II.  Lots of different materials were used to make the embroideries including fabric, wool, thread, wood, beads, plastic, cardboard, and in one case as you will see in tomorrow's post, a pair of socks! Fabric dyes were used to help achieve specific colours, paint and pens were also utilised to help create detail. Various textures were reproduced using techniques such as beading,  ruching and layering fabric and stuffing the fabric with wadding. For some pupils this was their first encounter with sewing but as is evidenced in their work they proved to be quite capable!
