Qué harás

I have been devising and running textile workshops and classes for adults since 2008 at the main South Devon College in the area. I've also held day workshops in my previous art studios and gone to peoples homes to teach. As a professional artist, I've also exhibited and sold my artwork since 1997 at various events both locally and regionally.

I love to teach, to share my passion and light that blue touch paper! The greatest reward is to bring out that hidden talent and confidence that comes with learning a new skill and producing something unique and handmade.

My experience will be
'Stitch a seaside picture using freemotion embroidery'.
Using a sewing machine, I will guide you how to design a scene, maybe working from a photograph, ideally, one you have taken of a seascape, then using fabric as paint and black thread as a pencil, using a sewing machine to produce a stitched picture ready to take away to frame.
Use of a sewing machine and all materials will be provided.
My class is ideal for one or two people max, to get almost one to one tuition.

I will provide tea/ coffee/ biscuits, there will be reference books and examples of stitched seascapes for inspiration.


Other textile day experiences will be available in the future.
i.e..'Hooky Rug Making' using recycled materials, Lampshade and cushion making, stamping & printing onto fabric, make a textile brooch heart.

I've been stitching since I was 10 years old, my father was an upholsterer, and my Mum a dressmaker, so I grew up surrounded by offcuts of fabric!
At 18, I travelled to America and fell into stitching stage wear for Country Singers in Memphis. I used recycled jeans to create one off designs, so was always passionate about recycling, back then in the 1970's.
I finally took my Design Arts degree when my children were teenagers and went straight into a craft studio in a craft centre, where from then on I exhibited and taught.
I now work from my home studio since my kids have all grown up and moved away, but just as passionate about stitching and recycling.
Living by the sea all my life, I'm drawn to blues and my subject matter of stitched seascapes, I also make hooky rugs using recycled fabrics, also quilts, cushions & lampshades.

Donde estarás

We will be in my downstairs home Textile Studio, which is level access in, so no mobility issues. There is a toilet off the studio.
If the weather is nice then we can go outside and sew/stitch on the decking as there is electricity for sewing machines and comfy chairs for hand crafting. The garden is sheltered, South-west facing, and private.
There is plenty of gated parking to park your car, or if coming by public transport I can collect you.
