Embroiders Guild

What a delight it was to teach Indigo dyeing and hand weave to the Embroiders Guild North Wales branch at the weekend.

The Guild welcomes everyone with an interest in any area of embroidery and we are proud to be recognised as a voice for raising the profile of textile and stitched art.
No longer just the domain of fabric and thread, textile art now embraces (amongst other things) the world of mixed media, dyeing with rust and plants, print and videos. We hold a historical collection, aid research, support students of all ages, and publish “Stitch” and “Embroidery” magazines. Members around the country are involved at whatever level they choose in meeting regularly to listen to speakers, often in their local Branch, attend workshops, learn new skills or build on existing ones, and participate in local, regional and national projects.
Members are encouraged to participate in any area of interest at any level, whether young people learning to stitch, a professional artist extending the boundaries of textile art, or someone who simply appreciates fabric and thread. We believe that textiles are as relevant today as they have ever been, and there is a place for both the traditional, fine hand stitching alongside the bold and contemporary machine work.
The Embroiderers' Guild exists to build awareness of stitch and textile art. We educate, encourage, inspire, and promote the achievement of excellence. This is a continuing journey. You may enter at any point.
We hope to show you that even though we are called a "Guild" there is nothing stuffy or exclusive about us! We welcome beginners and those who already stitch or are interested in textiles and textile art.

The very end of 2016 and the very beginning of 2017

Taking a step back from this busy time of year to reflect on my creative journey. It really has been an incredible year with shows, galleries, exhibitions, installations and Hothouse16. December is a month for research. Looking forward to putting my new ideas into practice in 2017.

Thank you for your support

and my best wishes for the New Year

Weekend workshop at The Wonder Inn Manchester.

My Indigo and weave workshops are focused on seeing the potential in forgotten materials. You are invited to bring your fabric/ garments that have a special story, memory or meaning, that you will dismantle and have the opportunity to dip dye and to create a unique piece of weave to treasure. A time to get away from the fast pace of our digital lives and to embrace slow craft processors.

Each student will need to bring dress making scissors and any fabric brought needs to be Cotton, Cotton dyes best in Indigo. I will bring a selection of fabric also. Tutoring, Dye and Materials all included. 

Investment is £25 per workshop

This workshop will be available on Sat 19th Nov & Sun 20th Nov.
We have 2 seperate event pages, so please ensure you follow the ticket link for your preferred day.
