Embroiderer’s Guild / NT Bodnant Garden Project

IMGP6285

Very pleased to say that our Embroiderer’s Guild / National Trust Bodnant Garden Project is going along well. It is early days, but all our design plans have been approved by the garden and have been given the go ahead to be made. The above image shows my design plan, with foxgloves in front of the Bodnant Garden’s Pin Mill. I hope to make this into a large textile banner made from a cotton sheet with a calico backing, hand painted with thickened dyes and free machine embroidery. More layers of flowers will be attached getting larger in scale, nearer to the front of the banner.

The final exhibition will be held throughout the garden the last week in August and first two weeks in September. Updates to come!
