New Stitchscapes – 3d felt rocks

3d embroidery workshop

If you love building up textures in textiles and creating beautiful art that literally pops out of the hoop, then this is the workshop for you! Enjoy a day of relaxing hand stitching and create a textured hoop using Stitchscape techniques, focusing on layering felt rocks for a dramatic landscape scene.

In this class you will learn the basics of layering fabrics to create a tactile background, as well as how to create a rockscape with individual stuffed felt rocks to go on top. A variety of hand stitches can be taught to emphasis your rocks or add texture, along with a selection of yarns and trimmings to really bring your landscape to life.

Using pre-printed or coloured cotton fabrics each layer is treated with different embroidery stitches ranging from simple straight stitches to slightly more advanced bullion knots so this is a perfect day out for embroiderers of all skill levels. The embroidery style is a free-for-all and with a ‘no-right-or-wrong’ attitude, this is a great session to come and give hand embroidery a go.

By the end of the session you will have a unique Stitchscape and be well on your way to completing your personal rockscape Stitchscape. There will be a written guide with stitches and diagrams to help you finish it off at home if needs be.

*Note: the photographed Stitchscapes are examples only, the fabrics and trimmings will vary, and you will create your own unique Stitchscape during the class.

Beth Power

Beth is an embroidery and textile artist from East Sussex who has always loved creating, sewing and playing with (or hoarding!) beautiful fabrics. Since completing a degree in Mixed Media Textiles at De Montfort University, Leicester, she has developed her own distinctive style of embroidery art using pre-printed or coloured fabrics to build up landscapes (affectionately known as Stitchscapes) which are then highly embellished with multiple forms of hand embroidery. With a free-style approach and a no-right-or-wrong attitude, her art pieces are becoming more textured and three-dimensional, with an eye for colour and patient attention to detail in every one. What started as a hobby has now turned into a flourishing embroidery business, Dotty Textiles.
