Creative Embroidery.

Form II pupils have been working on Creative Embroiderys which has demanded of the pupils both machine stitching and hand sewing. Their designs were inspired by the 'Natural World' and the execution of these designs was inspired by an Exhibition they visited earlier this term which was presented by the Embroiders Guild of Ireland. An array of materials has been used including beads, dye, plastic, tree bark, leaves, sweet wrappers as well as traditional fabric and thread. Over the next couple of days Sccart will publish the Embroidery work from Form II.
