Ghost Images with Pat Archibald

On Friday I went to a workshop with Edinburgh textile artist Pat Archibald. The workshop was focused on creating a ghost image by layering net. A wonderful technique which gives amazingingly satisfying results.

The day went far too quickly but I came away having learnt so many things apart from creating the ghost image, including how to couch on with the machine, how to use machine embroidery stitches to quilt and I had never used foils before so that was a bonus!

A great day and one to be recommended. pat is an excellent tutor.

And, here is the finished piece.
