From Art to Stitch

IMG_5809I have just done a talk for the Maidstone branch of the Embroiderers Guild about the making of my latest book. I will be doing this again for the Enfield branch on Saturday 11th March 2017 with a follow up workshop on Saturday 29th April on ‘Chuck Close’. The workshop will be about working with squares, a key feature of the work by Chuck cCose.

The book  has generated a number of new courses based on the work that I have done for it. These are:

Chuck Close – grids, print and straight stitch

Van Gogh – colour mixing with textured stitch

Kandinsky – Geometric shape with couching

Hundertwasser – Bright primary colours combined with pattern and darning for painterly surfaces

John Piper – mono print and mark-making

Morandi – small scale still life with detatched buttonhole stitch

Matisse – pattern and composite stitches
