Several of my students have recently completed their City & Guilds courses and have kindly given me permission to share their work.
This first post is about the wonderful work of Jenny Jones.
Her patchwork wallhanging was inspired by a visit to 78 Derngate, Northampton. A beautiful house which was re-modelled by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1916.
Each of the blocks in the wall hanging were inspired by different rooms, the stained glass and the decor.
She has really captured the spirit of the house and his work.
Her applique bag shows her attention to detail with hand and machine appliqué and trapunto flowers. The two sides show different seasons which compiment each other perfectly.
It has been lovely to see such wonderful work develop over the last few months.
I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I did and I would like to offer my congratulations to Jenny on her beautiful pieces.
