Felt Folds

an investigation of folds in felt by Maude Bath

Nature Inspired: Jenny Knight and Lyn Branson 

These works, inspired by various walks throughout the botanic gardens, are made by Lyn Branson using bead embroidery and Jenny Knight's beadwork. 
The techniques used by both artists overlap at times
Pictured are Lyn's two leaves, worked in bead embroidery and including a
blue gum leaf done in freeform bead embroidery. 
Jenny's pieces are a poppy necklace and a poppy brooch. There is also lotus flower brooch which will be part of a series of work.
