Jessie Chorley / Tuesday 1st September 2020 - Wednesday 30th September 2020
I am a designer, maker, collector, tutor, author and shop owner specializing in hand Embroidery Collage and Applique.
At the heart of my work is hand stitching, and traditional embroidery techniques combined with my passion for collecting found items of interest.
I use my needle and thread to both secure items in place as well as for detail.
My needle and thread are my drawing tool that allow me to create my scenes and stories directly in and on to my chosen fabrics and papers.
I use mainly DMC embroidery floss combined with favourite vintage threads to illustrate my chosen imagery and words directly on to and in to my selected and usually pre used
fabrics, papers and found objects.
I mainly work with paper and fabric all of which are found this being my passion,
my inspiration and always my starting point.
Clothing and fabric cut directly from pre-worn clothing is my most frequently used material.
Jessie will host a workshop here on Saturday 5th September, follow this link for full details
