Working with artist Danica Maier, this workshop will work against the usual printed guide pattern and 'rule' of a needlework kit to create a unique stitched work for each individual participant. Using the kit's original printed guide as the starting point you will develop and create new rules for working up your needlework piece. Focusing on one or two elements that will celebrate the original printed guide image as something to be retained while adding, developing, miss matching, or ignoring it with the new stitch marks. You will create an entirely original piece using the kits original design as the starting point while making a new work unique to you. Beginners and experienced embroiderers welcome. You will need: Sampler/embroidery kit - can be partially started, new or used - can be found in craft shops/online Embroidery hoop - to fit your kit fabric Embroidery needles - various sizes Embroidery thread - various colours and size Small scissors … and an open mind and sense of humour.
