Wendy Dolan - In the meadow  

Inspired by the meadow flowers project 'Layer, Paint and Stitch' you will layer and machine stitch natural fabrics and trimmings.  This textured background will be painted and then worked into with freehand and machine embroidery creating a meadow of flowers

Habitat - Work in progress

Jackie Murray
Jackie Murray has been inspired not only by her work on The Osprey Project at Rutland Water but also by looking at the work of other artists

Work from other members


Experience at recent exhibitions has shown, that many visitors to textile art exhibitions have little appreciation of the techniques and materials involved. Their appreciation of what they are viewing is greatly enhanced if they do have some understanding. So we hope to use Habitat as a 'mission to explain'. We are asking members to photograph the creative process and to illustrate and explain techniques and materials used. This will all be included in the exhibition.

After the exhibition we will be running a series of classes each covering a different stitching project.
