A selection of shibori and bullion stitch embroidery (AKA tiny art sausages) from Y9 boys looking at cell structure, neurons, and mixed-media techniques.
Shibori is one of my very favourite techniques; the bobble-y, elastic, biomorphic forms are always wonderful, and can be combined to make particularly interesting textures.
The experimental pieces shown are not stuffed; the fabric has been shrunk around small objects using heat and steam, before they are removed.
Using a vegetable steamer to make artwork is always a fun prospect.
