Create your own small, sumptuous piece with beautiful silk fabrics and hand-embroidered embellishment. If you love experimenting with colour you will enjoy this contemporary textile workshop.

This day course is suitable for all levels of ability. Friendly personal tuition will be given at each stage of the process.

Tutor information

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