Jessie Chorley Embroidered and patched Illustrations

September 16th - 23th 2017

Workshop Outline:

Join designer, maker and shop owner Jessie Chorley for an intensive embroidery and applique

Workshop to create your own hand stitched illustrations.

Jessie will be visiting  from her shop and studio on Columbia Rd, London, Uk

Jessie will have a display or recent hand stitched illustrations with her to inspire, as she starts this 5 day workshop with a talk about her working process as an embroidered, collector and shop owner.

Jessie will demonstrate how she uses her needle and thread both as her drawing tool, and also to hold in place found and fragmented items that she collects.She will also demonstrate her own unique way of patching and applique techniques using small fabric scraps and found items.

I work with a limited colour pallet and use simple  fabrics usually cut from found items of clothing or everyday homeware thus adding to the narrative of my final pieces.

I will be providing you at the start of the workshop with a kit that will include all you need to get started on your own embroidered illustration. This kit will include a front and back fabric to stitch in to, some fabric scraps for applique, plus some assorted hand printed templates from my studio for embroidering in to.
