PE - Applique
As part of the projecteducate Artisan Craft week, I am posting themed art features from various Artisan Crafts galleries every day.
Today I would like you to take a look at our Textiles gallery introduction as well as the accompanying interviews posted. To take a more in-depth look at this gallery, today's theme is applique.
In textile work, an appique is a piece of fabric or embroidery that is sew onto another piece of fabric to create a design or pattern. Often appliques are hand cut designs that are sewn onto a textile work. Here are fifteen gorgeous applique works for you to enjoy:

PE - Introducing Textiles
As part of the projecteducate Artisan Crafts Week, we would like to introduce the galleries within the Artisan Crafts main gallery. This week will be full of information, interviews and features related to all the different media and techniques that are at home in the Artisan Crafts galleries.
Today we are looking at the Textiles gallery. In the gallery description Textiles is described as "Art created by using fabric and natural woven materials including fashion/costume construction and hairpieces like wigs and falls."
Here on dA we have five sub-categories for the Textiles galleries. While these sub-galleries are pretty much self-descriptive, I would like to show examples from each of these galleries to highlight a few recently uploaded pieces.
Accessories
Clothing items that are not garments, but that accessorize garments, such as handbags, gloves, mittens, hats, wigs, socks, modifie

PE - Artisan Crafts ABC I-M

I stands for Intarsia
Intarsia, from the latin work "interserere", meaning "instert", is a technique in woodworking where pieces of wood are assembled a mosaic-like piece. Often different species of wood are used to have lighter and darker colors working together, this can also be achieved by staining the wood.
Intarsia can be set into larger wood panels or stand on their own as wall ornaments or used to decorate boxes, tables, wood floors, etc.
(the term Intarsia is also used in some other artisan crafts genres, but we are sticking with woodworking today)
