Embroidered Objects

Two day workshop with Jessie Chorley

Saturday 27th - Sunday 28th April 2013

Embroidered 2013 Event

This workshop concentrates on story-telling and creating a simple narrative through stitch, collage and appliqué. You will be using the needle both as your drawing tool and to secure found objects in place. Jessie will show each participant individually and as a group how to construct a simple 3-dimensional object from rags and found fabrics.

During the workshop you will explore your own narrative/starting points, finding ways to allow your story to unravel into the materials and object you create, this may be a wearable piece such as a brooch or equally a piece for the Wall at home.
