The June Meeting was a great success.
The launch of our "Hand Stitch" workshops led by Debbie Goddard teaching and presenting the huge diversity of the humble running stitch......
Followed by Caroline Bell with her beautiful eco dyed printed pieces- [note the use of the running stitch]
Textiles are such a creative medium to work with - come and join us to find out more.
Our Speaker Anne Sillifant - An obession with Trees May 2018
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.
Below are some of the beautiful work shared by our Meetings speakers
Michele Carragher - May 2017
Michele is the principal costume embroiderer on HBO's Game of Thrones. What a thrill it was to see and hear about her work on GoT and other productions.
