Flower Pounding Workshop

One Saturday in May, nine members attended a workshop given by Linda Rudkin.  There was a lot of tapping from our hammers as we transferred images from petals and leaves onto fabric.  In the afternoon we learnt how to trap plant material onto fabric - these results could be used for cards and pictures. 

We all enjoyed a relaxing and creative day with many ideas for future experimentation.
