Our Next meeting Tuesday 8th May 2018
Speaker Anne Sillifant - An obession with Trees
Drawing and printmaking helps me to explore the interesting surface qualities of natural forms, both in the landscape and in found objects such as shells and fossils.
I enjoy stitching freely into paper and drawing with the sewing machine. My current work involves constructing layered mixed media backgrounds for stitch. These are combined with soluble machine embroidery to form vessels and relief panels. Silk paper is also used as a background for stitch.
We are a branch of the Embroiderers' Guild and as such are committed to education about all aspects of the history and practise of embroidery and textile arts.
Are you interested in embroidery or any aspect of textiles? Just want to find out more about what we do? Why not join us at one of our friendly evening meetings, usually held on the second Tuesday of the month (except August) at 7:30pm
The Soltau Centre,
(Behind the Church of St. James-the-Less),

You don't need special skills or even to be an active stitcher. With us you will find plenty of inspiration and people to teach you.
We normally have a speaker who brings a presentation and examples of their work or pieces from their collection. Alternatively we organise a mini-workshop evening for those attending to try new materials and techniques and these are sometimes combined with social evenings. See our programme page for more details of what is planned for your intended visit.
In addition, membership brings the opportunity to join our other activities such as Saturday Schools, Visits, Design Days, Exhibitions and Group Projects.
