On Friday, some of us learned the basics of fabric fusion with our own very talented Rosemary Gries.

We worked at tables with views into Rosemary’s lovely garden and were supervised by handsome Charlie-the-cat.

Wielding dangerously hot soldering irons, we worked with gossamer-fine strips of organza of every colour of the rainbow. We let our imaginations run free and created our own pictures and designs to take home with us.

After lunch in the sunny garden, some remained to embellish their fused pieces further, with embroidery, ribbon and sequins.

Thank you so much to Rosemary for her patient tutelage and to Lis Davies for organising the day and for bringing along her delicious chocolate cake!
