I've listed some workshops for 2016 on my big cartel site here. These will be held at my home-based studio near Bradford, West Yorkshire. I'm starting the year with a Slow Stitch day, and in March and May will be running two day sessions for the first time, featuring dyeing and stitching. For more information and to book please visit here.
:: The above image shows some stitch on indigo. The colour is from my small henna-based vat (I keep it in an old spaghetti jar). I've been mordanting my fabric before dyeing to get darker tones and finding the results are very pleasing. The two day workshops advertised above will include this technique.
:: Signed copies of Slow Stitch are now available here. The book is reviewed in the November/December issue of Embroidery, on the Textile Artist website and in the Winter edition of UK Handmade magazine. Thank you so much to all those who have purchased a copy and who have sent me so many positive messages about it.
