June Workshop - Wyn Ingham - Silk Paper Book Covers

Wyn, who is also our Chairman, presented an inspirational workshop on silk paper making at our June workshop. So that we didn't have to wait impatiently for our own samples to dye, she also provided us all with a pre-coloured "book cover" so that we could start embellishing on the day. 

Here are our (incomplete) efforts : 

These are by Jen.
The stitched pattern is a vintage tablecloth transfer.
