Still life, working with silk organza and hand stitch. 

Emily Jo Gibbs is a British Artist who over the last two decades has established an international reputation for her delicate textiles.

Experiment with composition, using over lapping layers of translucent fabrics to build areas of different colours and tones.

Create a collage that is the backdrop for your hand stitching.

Using a variety of media including pencil, and silk paint, see how you can transfer images on to silk organza.

Mark making with hand-stitch, experiment with stitch length and density.
