For this workshop Richard has drawn on his love of stitching, paying attention to time, labour and care to develop days of stitching.

The workshop will explore a combination of traditional hand embroidery techniques, how you do it and why you do it. We will explore the tenderness; the slowness and rhythms of hand stitching; the versatility and strengths of embroidery for drawing and mark making; and the pleasure in having time to make. This is an experimental approach to stitch and draws on the imagination of each participant. Create textures and patterns, work a stitch in different threads changing its scale and spacing, work freely, and combine stitches to mark make and draw. Practical help will be given by demonstrating the many ways in which this can be achieved using the most simple of hand embroidery techniques, no knowledge of particular and precise embroidery techniques are needed. The emphasis will be on both group and individual tuition.


To develop traditional hand embroidery skills, to translate your own your thoughts and inspiration into stitch and to develop an understanding of embroidery as a contemporary art medium 

Requirements will be sent on confirmation of booking (materials included in class cost)
