Module five chapter 10

Chapter 10
Stitch to translate
I had to translate some of my rubbings into stitchery using mainly one stitch for each, but
using as many of it’s variations in order to achieve just the right effect as in the rubbing.
As in the previous chapter I shows my works here with photo collages, to document the
relationship between landscape, paper collage and the rubbings on paper reliefs
