A machine embroidery / mixed media workshop with Dot Ronaldson using decorative papers and ink. There will be templates available to work from or bring your own vase pictures as inspiration.


Everyone loves a bunch of flowers!
A day to improve your free machine embroidery skills and give you the opportunity to explore how cut flowers can be represented in stitched art.
You will choose from a selection of composition sketches and an array of types of decorative papers.  Coloured inks are used first to create the background. The papers can be torn or cut and then some will be arranged and slightly embedded into calico with gesso others will be PVA’d in place. Free machine embroidery is used to create detail and definition. Hand embroidery could then be added later.

    Dot is such an excellent teacher. Lots of ideas and very good advice meant that at the end of the day we had all achieved a lovely piece of work to be finished at home. Thanks for a superb day. Roll on the next one.
