50th Birthday Commission
What is more special, to mark a 50th birthday, than commissioning a pice of artwork about someone’s family history?
This panel features a personal photo recalling childhood holidays spent on the beach.
Start student Sally Rattenbury worked with Start Artist Wendy Teall to create the sumptuous textures in this embroidery.
Says Sally: ‘I learned a lot by doing this panel. It brought my technical and design skills together and helped me feel more confident about taking on work of this quality in the future. I’m very pleased with the results.’
The recipient of the gift was delighted: “It hangs over my piano at home and is a favourite piece”
