‘MEMORY LANE’ SESSIONS AT MAYFIELDS, BOSTON (monthly from 11 January 2017) Wed 15 June – Mixed media sculpture

The group used textiles and cardboard, separately and together to create 3D structures.

Using the prints on fabric remnants, group members used free embroidery to embellish the pattern.  No previous experience was required, having a pattern as a guide is helpful if you’re new to the craft and also allows space for those who are more experienced.

The craft of stitch and embroidery has been shown to lower blood pressure, lower stress levels, increase self confidence as stitches are mastered and stimulate the right hemisphere of the brain that is associated with creativity.

Andy isn’t keen on anything that involves textiles, so he worked on the cardboard 3D structure.photo 1
