This workshop will focus on Jessie’s signature hand embroidered illustrations incorporating embroidered lettering and appliqué techniques.

This workshop will start with a simple talk, and Jessie showing you her original art works. Jessie will then go on to direct you as a group and individually, as she helps you to create your own story in her signature style of stitch and appliqué.

You will be working on a natural linen fabric as your base, and to let your personal story unfold on and in to. You will be show by Jessie various favourite stitch techniques, including her signature style of couching, running, stem and back stitch and simple needle turned appliqué to create your own stitched stories and imagines directly in and on to your base cloth.

A note for all participants:

You will be given a kit* in person from Jessie at the start of this workshop. Please bring with you your own sewing tools, favourite embroidery threads and any favourite fabric scraps that you may like to incorporate, these can be small scraps in soft whites or various colours and patterns. Odd small paper scraps ie old postcards, letters, book pages. Favourite embroidery threads that you may like to use and your own sewing tools. Odd charms, buttons and other personal ephemera are also good to bring as they may become stitched in to your story during this workshop.

*The kit includes a base fabric, hand cut applique fabric shapes and fabric scraps plus a printed post card of Jessie’s favourite embroidery stitches.
