Chopped and Changed with Helen Jones- 2 Nov 2014

This required an unfinished piece, or work, that was considered to be a total flop. Perhaps from a previous “Pass the Textile” workshop or some other workshop, or maybe a piece that was started at home that remained incomplete because you simply didn't like it.
Each member's piece was chopped up, shared amongst ourselves and used to create a beautiful and interesting new piece.
The new textile art work will be used to cover a book (A5 size). These will be brought to the AGM, wrapped and exchanged between members.

Pieces in progress:
