Using traditional hand stitch techniques with neutral cloth and thread, explore transparency in cloth as you play with cutwork, running stitch, layering, appliqué and inlay using leaves and other natural forms, to create contrasts of surface. Create a personal cloth book with your stitching as a means to inspire new work.
Having trained in Embroidery Amanda is still obsessed by the purity of thread and cloth. She is now working freelance after an enjoyable and satisfying few decades working on Art Foundation courses. She enjoys sharing her practice with others and is particularly interested in the way we all respond to similar elements with our own visual language.
