Project Two Stage 3 – A sample


The picture I chose was of an engraving. Artist unknown, as a very old picture I had from years ago.


I studied the engraving and made a drawing based on the marks found within in the picture. This produced a totally different drawing with which I based on my textiles piece.



I chose to use chain, running and zigzag stitch. These were the only stitches which ‘felt’ right.

The velvet produced a shimmering finish against the dull wool. Overall I am happy with the piece.
