China Trip #2
Leaving Jingdezhen, the porcelain city, we stopped at a silk weaving workshop where the tapestry weavings were over embroidered with silk stitching. Really beautiful work. Here are some examples of silk weavings where the animals or other motifs including text were then further embellished with silk embroidery. I can't wait to get back to my own embroideries and beadwork.
