Stories in stitch with Jessie Chorley

1 day workshop 19 & 20 October 10.30am – 4.30pm £85 includes light lunch

This workshop will focus on Jessie’s signature hand embroidered illustrations incorporating embroidered lettering and appliqué techniques.

This workshop will start with a simple talk and demonstration by Jessie about how to start your own embroidered stories in stitch. Jessie will then go on to direct you as a group and individually, as she helps you to create your own story in her signature style of stitch and appliqué.

You will be working on a natural linen fabric as your base, and to let your story unfold on and in to. You will be shown by Jessie various favourite stitch techniques, including her signature style of couching, running, stem and back stitch and simple needle turned appliqué to create your own stitched stories and imagines directly in and on to your base cloth.

Some basic sewing skills are essential for this workshop.
