‘Forest Floor’ using Lutradur by Karen Lane
Karen made this intricate and beautifully detailed piece of work as a sample for her Forest Floor Workshop – a fun two-day event using Lutradur and other materials.
Techniques include painting, use of heat guns, soldering irons, plus hand and machine stitching.
Karen says she used painted, heat-distressed and stitched Lutradur 70gsm to create the leaves and various yarns and hand embroidery for the mossy forest floor.
The fallen tree bark is painted and heat distressed Tyvek, again hand embroidered and the whole thing has been sewn on to Calico, before mounting on a canvas. Size 32cms x 28cms.
The following four images are examples of work created by a few of Karen’s students, as a result of her workshop . . .
