For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitch using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

an embroiderers ledger....extended

Colour studies, identifying pattern, extending pattern , design, embroiderers ledger. This is  the most popular of my work on your own classes. I am altering this one into a ''current'' online learning programme, old video combined with new video, new private blog and new private Flickr Group. This is in response to the thing which is lacking for some with ''work on your own'' programmes, ''group interaction'' and feedback on your creative process. Feedback from me, from the group, the sharing of ideas, inspiration, resources and creativity. You can read more here and this sort video explains the class in more detail.....
