Ruth Norbury Workshop

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.
