My residency at Oatlands has been a bit like a tasting plate at a restaurant. My promise to myself was to experiment and create different surfaces to stitch into. I’ve found it hard to make myself continue at times. Sometimes the experiment has gone no further than the surface I created as I feel it is enough. The photo above is an example. My white fabric was mono printed, then overprinted with key using a plate I made with watercolour paper, then subsequently stenciled with 79. The key plate was made by tracing the huge key I was given to open the AIRspace studio whose number is 79. 🙂

However, I have been captivated by the stains and patterns found in the sandstone blocks in the old buildings about Oatlands and have been exploring this too.
