Stitchclub presented an online workshop with Ruth Norbury that captured my imagination. She works primarily with abandoned and deteriorating "lost" spaces. When we were in Motueka last year I took several photos of an old wreck off the coast and I have decided to use this as the basis of my attempt at this technique. I have posterised and adjusted colour and contrast in this image and now it is ready to stitch though onto the substrate before overdying and then further stitching. I have chosen this photo because of the rust texture along the sides of the wreck.
