In her current series of work – ‘A Sense of Place’ Wendy is exploring the landscape, incorporating maps into her layered and stitched textiles. Every map tells a story and invites the viewer to discover new lands, visit new places, and remember holidays and landmarks. Her love of architecture is combined in her designs, incorporating iconic buildings and landmarks through stitch. She will demonstrate how she pieces and layers fabrics and map fragments, building up surface textures and working into them with freehand machine and hand stitching. Three dimensional mediums and fabric paint add interest to her textile designs.
