This method makes lots of prints so there will be plenty of choice when it comes to selecting which prints to add stitches to.

We also did rubbings of leaves and other textures.

Lucy took a rubbing from the chair seat, which produced a really strong effect.

Stitch in Time (Part Two)

We are working with a group from About With Friends, based in Cromer, continuing the Stitch in Time project whose starting point is the coast.

Our first session was a visit to West Runton to collect ideas and images to inspire us for our print making and stitching in weeks to come.
