Off the Grid

Experimenting with Texture and Pattern in Hand Stitch 

The  aim of the workshop is

  • To encourage exploration and experimentation
  • To use positive limitations to develop your skills in decision making. 
  • To help you develop an understanding of the importance of thread choice and how it affects the surface quality of your work. 
  • To push your your stitches to their full potential and create more surface texture.
  • To have fun trying out stitches that are new to you and find out what they can do.

There’s also a new article on Textileartist.org about where I find my inspiration written by Mary Carson

Textileartist.org Stitch Club

I recently taught an online workshop called ‘ The Power of 3’ for the Textileartist.org Stitch Club.

This workshop explores the power of positive limitations ; as a design tool, to create colour schemes, or to audition fabrics and threads for your next piece of work. Use fabric strip weaving and hand stitching to embrace the power of 3 as a starting point; 3 different coloured fabrics, 3 different coloured threads, and 3 stitches.

This simple exercise provides easy way to get rid of the blank page and give a ‘quick start’ to a piece of work. Work with the limitations to achieve a cohesive result and use the grid made by the strip weaving to add pattern, texture or even include a simple line drawing.

The members of Stitch Club produced some amazing work. Here’s a small selection.

Texture & Pattern Online workshop

My new online Texture & Pattern course in conjunction with my sons Joe & Sam from Textileartist.org is open for registration until 23/06/17.

The course is all about focusing in and pushing the potential of just a few basic textile techniques (like hand stitch and appliqué), so you feel empowered to develop a visual vocabulary that is personal to you.
And, because founding students get lifetime access, you can immerse yourself in regular, manageable bursts of creativity on your own schedule.
