Early in 2021 I was delighted to receive an invitation from TextileArtist.org to do an online workshop for their online membership stitchclub. I happily agreed and was told I could do anything I wanted to. I had to get a proposal together to give them an idea as to what I wanted to do and there lay the difficulty! I am a serial experimenter and love to try all sorts of things so it was tricky to whittle it down. In the end, I had to ask myself what is at the core of everything I do and therein lay the answer – botanical printmaking. There are many, many ways to make prints, so I chose the simplest way I could think of with the least amount of equipment, which was easily accessible across the world. As most of the members work in stitch on fabric, I used fabric paint/fabric printing ink as the medium and my preferred substrate – paper. As a mixed media artist, I use collage in a lot of my work, so there was step two and then of course, nothing is complete without stitching! A workshop was born.

My interview on Textileartist.org is up on their website – read more about my process and details of some of my work. I’m so excited to be presenting an online workshop for the members of the Stitchclub. Unfortunately membership is closed for the moment but subscribe to their really interesting newsletter which will give you a heads-up when membership is open again. There is a subscription box on the interview page. Leave a comment here or there and I’ll do my best to answer soon.
