Paper, Wire & Stich

Priscilla Jones Workshop
I have been very fortunate to attended the Paper, Wire & Stitch workshop 
with the wonderful Mixed Media Artist Priscilla Jones

Lots of fabulous tutorials, techniques and my favourite textures, textures and more textures
 Focussing on techniques rather than finished pieces but I did managed to create this very organic bowl! and a lantern that's still a work in progress
Collage page before construction
Internal view, reminds me of an Orchid

Selection of the collage pages, using lots of techniques and materials
It was wonderful to spend two days experimenting!
