Creative stitchery!

What a nice inspiring weekend! A fantastic artist named Emma Jönsson has an exhibition in Järpen kulturhus and hold a workshop on Saturday. She is a textil artist who paints on fabrics and then build her picture with
stitchery and a lot of details. Her pictures and stitchery communicate a light and ephemeral atmosphere and every artwork tell a story of it's own.


Since it's well known that we can create better if the rigt side of the brain operate at its full potential we started up to slowly draw our hand without looking at the pencil or paper.
 Hard fun work!
Then a lot of croquis, fast one for two or five minutes! We really had a lot of practice how to look and see different shapes and lines.

This is  drawings that my classmates made. Great work ladies!

After lunch we finally could pick up our sewing things and yarns. Now it is the moment of truth!
 Emma act modell and we are suposed to stitch her by just look and find the lines and shapes.
No drawing!
I found it surprisingly easy! My brains right side must have been alert! :)

Here are some results from class!

Some details from Emmas fantastic work!

To all of you who have the opportunity to visit her's worth it! 
The exhibition is going on until 3 April.

Hugs from a happy lady full of new energy! Margreth :)
