Shoreline Workday

with Nicky Dillerstone

Tap to view

Using a sea-shell as the base of your creative work, you will add texture and detail through stitch, beading, wire and other ephemera to emphasis the colours and textures commonly found on sea-shells and in the shoreline itself. This will be achieved by either stitching directly into the shell or by using felted pieces to insert into the shell enabling areas of rich detail to be created. This is very much a 3D artwork which would suit being mounted on a plinth or stand, so the work can be viewed in the round.
