Fabulous time on the north east Embroiderers Guild residential spring school with Gwen Hedley in Collingwood college. The course was entitled 'Along New Lines' and we basically made our A6 sketch books look "very exciting" whilst learning new ideas on the theme of 'line'. See below . . .

I loved every minute of it alongside a great class on 21 students in all - we were all very productive, very pro-active and very inspired! Thanks Gwen and to the organizers of the North East Region Embroiderers' Guild.

This work is inspired by Islamic design and repeat patterns, but not a copy. I worked it in a very spontaneous way, by just drawing in basic lines and tracing the shapes very naively, although I maintained a certain amount of accuracy.
