A documentary about Volcanos inspired this piece. I have always enjoyed Bargello – the colour schemes, the interesting shapes, and the creativity of position. Watching the flow of Lava in this documentary reminded me of Bargello patterns. In order to create a “flowing” pattern, students will learn how to manipulate the design to form a freeform type Bargello pattern. We use #3 Perle Cotton in this piece as it is thicker and the coverage is better. The piece is further brought to life by the addition of Metallic Ribbon.
