Just a little reminder to anyone in the Tyne & Wear area The Shipley Embroidery Group is on this Saturday 2pm - 4pm (every month, on the first Saturday of the month at The Shipley Art Gallery in Gateshead). Everyone is welcome just a couple of hours stitching in the company of fellow embroiderers. You don’t have to be very skilled –just keen, everyone is very helpful!
Had a great day yesterday at a workshop with Theresa Easton, "Introduction to print & bookbinding", held at her Lime Street Studio.
We spent the morning printing (oh, I would really love a printing press!), & in the afternoon Theresa taught us various methods of book binding & how to fold & cut some of our prints into little art books. (Some of the books I made, pictured)
Theresas work is very inspirational - you can see more about her & her work at http://theresaeaston.wordpress.com/
Happy stitching, printing, folding & cutting!, -Deb.
Mining a Golden Seam is an exhibition by members of the North East Region of the Embroiders Guild recently showing at Alexander Palace London & Harrogate International Centre.
