Transparent Butterfly with Bets Maas
Monday 2nd & Tuesday 3rd July
The ‘Transparent Butterfly’ is also called the ‘Glass Wing Butterfly’ The tissue between the veins of the wings resembles finely blown glass which shimmers in the sunlight. In this project its beauty is captured with embroidery according to the Barbola technique. It is similar to stumpwork but no wires are being used. The result is much finer and truer to nature. The colours for the project were chosen to resemble live specimens. The design measures 22cm x 13cm.
Skill level: All embroidery skill levels are welcome
