NEW WORKSHOPS FOR 2017
You may have noticed that news from my studio has been a little quiet lately. Having caught my breath from other projects, I can now announce some new workshops for 2017. Amongst some established favourites I also have some brand new workshops for 2017, including some two-day weekend workshops.
New workshops for the year ahead include a Hand Stitch Sampler weekend in which we will explore and experiment with contemporary ways to use decorative stitches. Another workshop I am very excited to announce is Patching & Place; an opportunity to respond to the heritage of cloth production in Yorkshire, we will combine cyanotype print with stitch and patchwork techniques. We will also explore cyanotype and hand embroidery in the popular Inspiration from Historical Textiles.
Workshops take place at my studio on the top floor of the Butterfly Rooms in the UNESCO World Heritage model village of Saltaire, West Yorkshire. With perhaps one of the best views of Saltaire village, the studio certainly has a unique perspective!
You can find more details or book a place now on my website. There is also the option to buy a workshop as a gift… so feel free to forward this, as a not so subtle hint to your nearest and dearest!
