theyard:ARTspace kicked off the Summer term with a gorgeous workshop from the talented Julia Jowett.
She filled the studio with delicious snippets and threads
and bought along her beautiful textile work for inspiration.
A happy day was spent making embellished textile and wire flowers,
fueled by Tunnocks of course.
With lots of colours to choose from
everyone set to covering wire shapes with fine embroidery stitching
carefully considering colour combinations.
In the afternoon lots of new skills were learnt,
embellishments by stitching over washers,
and pom poms used to great effect.
Everyone left with several new skills, lots of ideas
and a gorgeaous flower to hang or place somewhere in the home.
I can't stop stitching bouillon roses, thank you Julia for teaching that stitch, it was a revelation.
Don't miss Julia's next workshop at the yard:ARTspace as part of Create for Christmas, make Embroidered Tree decorations, 26 November. Contact me for details.
