The uniquely talented artist Stewart Easton was asked to produce this lovely image entitled "La Segua", in his digital and hand embroidery style.
The image depicts a Costa Rican folk tale entitled: 'La Segua' which Stewart designed for the Making Moves project in conjunction with Craftspace Ltd.
The project is about working within a Hispanic Group formed of a mix of people from Spain, Peru, Mexico and Costa Rica with the aim to expose children to the Hispanic Culture and the Spanish language .
After meeting with them in Warwick, Stewart was required to make a piece of artwork which had a connection to the group. During the specific workshops that took place there was a great deal of story telling by the the people taking part. Stewart was inspired by a particular folk tale from Costa Rica entitled "La Segua" that was told by one of the group, and he has used that storyline for the grounds of his creative artwork.
This piece was hand drawn, digitally manipulated and printed digitally onto fabric. It was then finished by hand embroidery.
