DIY Textile School

This year I started with a textile course in Amsterdam. One day a month is a contact day with each time a different artist as teacher. I like working with textile and embroidery although I have almost zero knowledge. So in that part I want to broaden my horizon.
The first month was all about self portraits and contrast. They had to be in black and white.
I've tried a few different things, based on photographs with extra contrast of myself.

 Hand embroidered on paper/textile fibre
 Machine embroidered on bookbinding linen
Various pieces of lace on cheese cloth (hand sewn)
