What are you doing at home?

This week I’ve turned the corner in a way, and I’m preparing for a long time home.
What does ‘long time’ mean?
Who knows, but I need to plan and get on with what I love doing best—working with Textiles. Hopefully, sometime in the future I can travel and teach again, but I can assure you I will have a large bank of new ideas in the cases.
That said, I’m exploring new ideas, and I’m going to share them with you as I do them.

Doing something different.

This is what I’ve been working on for a week or so now.

I took a photo of a lady in India, it’s my personal photo.

I changed the photo into a sketch by using an app on the iPad called Sketchmee 2. I can manipulate it to get the effect I require.

I printed two images onto very fine cream fabric bought in India and I think the video will explain it all.

The iPad image.

      Thank you, it’s nice to have the time to experiment.

  2. Thats really an amazing piece of art, and a whole lot of threadwork. Very tedious, I would assume, requiring much more patience than what I can believe to ever have. Unfortunately for me, I couldn’t see the video, as it was only a blank window for me. The audio was there, so I heard it. Great going. Looking forward to more such artworks.

    Hello Pam, Thank you for this post and especially the video. I have so much enjoyed seeing your ‘at home’ work and the way you are tackling the TextileArtIst.org Stitch Club challenges. As always I love your creative and inspiring portraits. Please could you share your process for printing photos on to the Indian fabric? I have tried unsuccessfully to do this myself and the Commercially prepared fabric sheets are too expensive to use for experiments.
    Kind regards
