Hedges, especially when they are stripped of leaves, have long held a fascination for me. The area of Wales where we stayed last week was full of them, and here are just a few of the many pictures I took.
I've been making some simple monoprints using the 6" gelli plate. My step grand-daughters were making prints using my A4 gelli plate, so I simple used the colours they were using.
....in a variety of ways - machine stitched, twisted, knotted, plaited and wrapped.
I thoroughly enjoyed making these cords - some are soft and pliable, others quite rigid, some with a mind of their own! The end use of a cord would have to dictate what it was made of!
And finally - Turks head knots. I really struggled with this, and I'm not convinced that the sample below is quite correct. If I am going to use a Turks head knot in Chapter 7, I'm really going to have to practice!
