one day workshop


Influenced by 1950’s children’s story book character’s

You will create a vintage style small textile piece of art. Using materials which have their own past, perhaps stained or frayed. Time worn fabrics with their own story to tell. You will decorate your sampler with hand appliquรฉโ€Ž and patchwork. Incorporate simple hand embroidery stiches inspired by classic motifs found on antique tablecloths, or cross stitch. Finally embellishing with vintage lace and buttons.

Think about telling a story?

You could make the textile sampler more personal by adding some old photographs, letters or other personal mementos. This will be an opportunity to tell your own tiny tale and nudge the past into the present.

Please note, sadly I had to postpone all my workshops, group talks and experiences that were booked in 2020 due to Covid 19. I very much hope these will resume in 2021. So please do contact me if you if you wanted to discuss group talks about my work, to share the day with me on a workshop, or book an experience. I look forward to hearing from you.
