15 March 2014: Caroline Kirton - "Graphic Design and Stitch"

By Caroline Kirton

I spent a really lovely day yesterday taking a workshop for a group of enthusiastic embroiders from the Oxford embroiders guild. It was a very productive day with some fantastic work produced by the end of the day, although some is still work in progress! It was a challenge for some to decide on what images to choose, but once decisions were made every one seemed to enjoy choosing their fabrics and composing their designs.

What I enjoy about the workshops and find interesting is how every one has a different interpretation of the brief and brings a touch of their own style into the finished piece of work.

Here are the finished results hope you find them as inspirational as I do.
