Textural Landscape Embroidery
This course is designed both for beginners and participants with some experience in stitching.
You will be learning how to interpret a landscape project with variety of stitches combined into structures. Different textures of stitches can wonderfully express different areas of a landscape: grassy hills, meadows, fields, water, rock formations and wisps of clouds.
You will work with a photograph of an Irish landscape as a reference and embroider lines and structures of stitches on a project drawn from this photograph. You will be taught to use flat and three-dimensional stitches to express a variety of textures according to how they appear in nature.
The students will need to provide their own materials and tools for the course. For further information on what you will need for the entire course and suggestions on where to get them, go to: https://cutt.ly/embroidery-landscape

In 2018/2019 I was working for Creative Spark, Dundalk, providing embroidery workshops for community projects. Since 2016 I teach various workshops at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre in Naul. In 2020 I started teaching fibre arts courses at Malahide Community School.
