Laura McCafferty Art

I recently went on an Applique course with Spinsters Emporium at the Hopkinsons Gallery in Nottingham and learnt how to sew applique on to different items in different ways and was inspired by the various ways it can be done.

We was shown an artist who uses Applique in a different way to make large pieces of art which i loved and now i only have to think about that artist to become motivated in making something more original.

Laura McCafferty layers up her pieces of fabric to produce a reinvention of a photograph - AMAZING
The typical English image captures the lifestyle of these 2 elderly people.

I havent actually started to make anything yet but the ideas are always there and im thinking with Xmas coming up it might be a starting point for me i just need spare time to get going!!!
