Interpreting a Theme – Postcards
As part of a series of exercises exploring the theme of ‘design’ the Guild set a challenge to interpret a photograph in stitch. Each participant had an opportunity to submit a photo, of anything that struck their fancy. The rules for interpretation were simple: Any technique could be used; the finished work had to be postcard-sized (6” x 4”, 7” x 5”); and the back had to include the name and address of the recipient (this was an exchange, so we knew who we’d be sending to, and who we’d be getting one from). The exercise was not to replicate the photo per se, but to choose something about it that resonated with you and stitch that!
How do you think you’d have interpreted your postcard?
