Notes from the Studio

It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the studio, not that I’m complaining! I’m lucky to have lots of teaching and community projects to work on at a time when the UK government is stupidly advising people in creative industries to retrain.

My biggest project has been the Arts and Minds Hope Quilt, a project which brings together embroidered squares created by people from around the NHS Trust. We chose the theme of hope, looking to the future and thinking about our ideas for change and positivity. It’s great to see all the square together, something I can’t share yet but watch this space.

Arts and Minds members have also contributed to a fantastic online exhibition called Change is Gonna Come which you can see here.

I’ve also been working on some new collaborations with Workshop in Headingley. I’ll be offering some instant access workshops in the coming weeks that cover how to do basic embroidery techniques and create some designs. I can’t wait to share them with you.
