A Visit to Michelle Griffiths Studio

Today I went with friends Isobelle and Fiona to find a textile artist based in Llantrisant who, amongst other things runs sewing for Pleisure groups- and what a pleasure it turned out to be!

Michelle Griffiths studio was heavenly to explore – so much to see and do!

A lovely Shibori collar took Fiona and Isobelle’s eye and they just had to try it on!

After a long chat about lots of interesting things including the activities of the Costume and Textile Society of Wales we settled down to some sewing, which was to make a Japanese Kanzashi style flower brooch.

These are ones that Michelle had made earlier

and this was my attempt!

A great afternoon that we are hoping to repeat regularly – there is so much to learn!
