A Country Bouquet
Create your own beautiful bouquet of flowers and foliage in stitch and pure silk ribbon embroidery. This technique is very satisfying and easy to master. Your finished piece could be framed or incorporated into a cushion panel or bag as a celebratory item. This day course is suitable for all levels of ability and friendly personal tuition will be given at each stage of your project.

My passion for hand embroidery started in early childhood. My deep interest in pattern, colour and texture extended into many artistic areas of study and I have always enjoyed experimenting with stitch and design.
As an experienced school teacher it comes as second nature to share and pass on my own enthusiasm in learning and developing new skills. After studying for the City and Guilds Certificate in Creative Embroidery and Design at Exeter College I went on to run my own creative Textile Workshops, teaching adults of all abilities.
I have also given talks and demonstrations to local groups in Somerset.
