ART SHOP WORKSHOP copy web

Jessie Chorley will be visiting The Art Shop & Chapel from her East London shop and studio. She will spend 3 days in Residence at The Art Shop starting on Wednesday 19th April, demonstrating her unique way of hand embroidering. To finish the residency, on Saturday 22nd April she will run an intense one-day embroidery workshop.

During her residency you will be able to see a collection of recent hand stitched illustrations. Jessie will demonstrate and talk about her working progress as an embroiderer, collector and story teller.

On the workshop day, join Jessie to create your own hand stitched illustrations, inspired by Jessie’s unique style. She will show you how she uses her needle and threads as her drawing tools to both illustrate with and also to incorporate and secure found items of interest.

‘I work with a limited colour palette and use simple found fabrics, usually cut from found items of clothing or everyday homeware, which adds to the narrative of my final pieces. I will provide you on the day with a simple kit that will include all you need to get started on your own embroidered illustration.’

£85 includes lunch, all refreshments throughout the day and majority of materials. Booking Essential as places are limited.
