Embroidery school 2018.... an online learning programme, hand stitch at it's purest.
2018 will be the year of my ''stitch ledger'', the development of a resource centred on the hand embroidery stitch.
''a loop of thread or yarn resulting from a single pass or movement of the needle in sewing''
Be a fly on my wall whilst I develop my stitch ledger along with other works resulting from spontaneous inspiration. Observe my creative process, learn from my successes and my mistakes as I sample, as I construct embroidered surfaces from patches of cloth, snippets of hankies and decorative trims along with other found cloth both new and vintage. Witness the development of paper based works for use in design sheets and ledgers, in sketchbooks. Create what I create or embroider your own pieces whilst observing and learning from my creativity.
This online creative experience takes the form of a very relaxed and gentle gathering of cloth and embroidery for those who have an affinity with handling cloth, working with cloth. I discuss my plans, my inspiration, the preparation and creation of embroidered cloth. I demonstrate technique and process throughout. I guarantee that there will is embroidery, embellishment and the manipulation of cloth. I share my thoughts along with the more tangible sources which drive me.
***No prerequisites, suitable for beginners and the more experienced.***
