‘Forage and Felt’ with Caroline Hyde-Brown


A great opportunity to work with Caroline Hyde-Brown producing a felted and stitched artwork involving either hand or machine embroidery – or both!


Achieve a beautiful softly felted piece to embroider by using a combination of flowers, leaves and hand dyed carded wool. Let Caroline guide you through her own simple and innovative way of combining natural materials, layers of thread and hand picked foraged seed heads, flowers and fallen leaves. A wide eyed needle and some boucle yarn for some slow stitching in the afternoon will finish off your piece with framing advice also.  Whilst you are working Caroline will introduce individuals to the Ancient Japanese art of Hapa- Zome, either for hand embroidery or to be used as a border design.

About the Artist

Caroline originally trained in Fashion Design at Solent University and designed clothes and scarves for an international textile agent. In 1992 she decided to return to her first love of painting, and studied Textile Design B.A. (Hons) at Nottingham & Trent University.
In 1995 she started my own business designing and producing embroidered fabrics for Liberty, including pictures, cushions, lighting, and wall hangings. She also produced three one off collections for John Lewis, a Valentines Story and a Spring Summer Collection of framed pieces.
She has always maintained a strong sense of global responsibility – and only uses natural fabrics and colours that are extracted from flowers, herbs and vegetables grown in her garden. She invests a substantial amount of time and research into sourcing materials and many of the papers are from the developing world, where rural communities rely solely on this as a source of income.
