Teenage Adventures in Textiles

MicolMy 10:15 club and I have been enjoying a textile extravaganza this term. Each week they try a new technique, or return to a piece from a previous week and build on it with threads, beads, pens, glitter, or the sewing machines. Chaos for the mess we make, but it's fun to see who takes to which techniques, and where people go with their chosen themes. Sebastian is adicted to the sewing machine. Isabella and Milly are absorbed in fabric pen work, which Leonie creates meticulous illustrated pieces.

This is Micol's elephant masterpiece, as she explores everything to do with Sri Lanka.
