Create a stitched postcard of the lovely Coalbrookdale landscape. We start the day with an inspirational walk, using view finders and cameras to get ideas. Use colours and textures to build your own postcard. Explore using layers of fabric, then stitch into them. Learn how to use embroidery stitches to finish your piece.
The workshop will take place in the beautiful landscape of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site and the Trust’s community room which is located in a fully accessible award winning eco-build, set within the woodlands of Sunniside Old Deer Park in Coalbrookdale.
Refreshments will be provided. Please bring along a packed lunch.
Workshop tutor – Katherine Keatley
Having completed my Certificate from the Royal School of Needlework. I worked for Heritage Stitchcraft and ran Zweigart’s UK distribution for 3 years. I am a complete thread junkie, I love all threads, wools, silks, everything. The colours and texture pull me in. I like to use what inspires me. I love nature, and my inspiration comes from walking my dogs and watching the world. I love history. I offer workshops focusing on traditional textiles, Iron Age spinning, weaving, and dyes, Embroidery, and felt making.
