To compliment this range of fabrics I began to experiment with soy wax resist methods on one of my monthly independent study days at Committed to Cloth with Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan. My fabrics developed over several sessions and I now have an exciting palette with which to work.
As I'm off on my first study day of the year tomorrow, I pieced together a selection of my fabrics this morning ready to take with me.
I'm rather pleased with my composition and although I have assembled it as a landscape piece it is quite possible that it will end up portrait as it looks just as good that way round.
I have thoughts about appliqueing some of my wax resist fabrics on to the surface but will also experiment with ideas of printing or stencilling over the top of it - may be even both! I think samples are called for here.
I will let you know the outcome soon.
