Terri and Norma are highly specialised and experienced tutors dedicated to uncovering the true creative potential of even the most hesitant embroiderer. They present you with exciting methods of designing and teach you to translate these into stitched pieces. They exhibit their work with Textile-21 and are members of the North West Textiles Forum Artists Group (NOWTAG). Terri's work is featured in Val Holmes' book, Creative Recycling in Embroidery and work by both Terri and Norma is featured in Margo Singer's new book Textile Surface Design, Silk and Velvet, due out in summer 2007.
This is a residential 3 day workshop which takes you through a design process into contemporary machine embroidery. You begin with visual information moving on to design development using exciting experimental techniques. Terri and Norma support you throughout the workshop to enable you to translate your designs into machine embroidery. For those with an interest in creative computing and computerised sewing machines, the course offers an opportunity to observe or experiment. This is an exciting stimulating and inspirational course that enables you to leave the workshop with a body of work to use as a basis for your own personal development.
In this 3 day course you create a gorgeous complex fabric which can be made into a project of your choice. It touches on colour combining and balancing, to create a richly treated embroidered surface.
