Join me whilst I create pages of stitch and collage using cloth, embroidered scraps, beads, buttons, lace, pattern and paper. My pages will, at the end of our 8 weeks, be combined in order to create an Artist Book, an Artist Book bursting with samples and inspiration.
Your pages can be added to any book you wish, make your own ledger with fine paper, with hand made paper, with patterned paper or use a special sketchbook, maybe even a story book. These things will be discussed and considered during our 8 weeks of creativity.

***please note. I have only basic book making skills. This is not a book making class in terms of the creation of finely bound sketchbooks, journals or ledgers. My own book will be very basic and simple. I am happy for you to be more experimental and adventurous with your own books. I encourage the pushing of boundaries, the exploration of idea and thought.***

My role is to demonstrate the creation of large collaged sheets of paper, cloth and embroidery, to illustrate the creation, from those sheets of stitched scraps for your pages and to then share how a page can be adorned in order to enhance the presentation of your sampling.

This is not an ''art'' class as you may imagine my little book will be enhanced purely through the use of stitch.

Images of my own ''Artist Books'' can be seen here. From viewing these images you will gain an appreciation of what can be achieved during this 8 week programme and beyond.
