Time: 10.15am - 4pm with a break 12.30-1.30

In this workshop you will create a piece of textile art using fabrics, threads, vintage book pages and embroidered flower shapes to create an intricate work of art inspired by local wild flowers. You will be hand stitching your work, with expert guidance from your tutor on relevant embroidery stitches to use. The workshop is led by award winning textile artist Donna Cheshire. All the materials you will need will be provided in the workshop (But if you need glasses for close work bring them!!)

Donna Cheshire

Donna Cheshire is a textile artist investigating the power that the natural landscape has to ground, nurture and strengthen us. Working with appliqué, hand dyed & machine stitched fabric, embellished with hand stitches Donna produces textile art with an expressive, painterly feel. She studied textile design to Masters level and continues to develop her work through sketchbook explorations and sampling.

As a qualified teacher, Donna worked for many years teaching Art & Design to post 16 students. She now combines her own practice with work as a freelance tutor.
Having grown up ‘down South’ Donna has moved progressively Northwards. The landscape and coastline of the North East and Scotland have become pivotal to her practice.
