About The Stitch Workshop

The Stitch Workshop

Textiles and jewellery inspired by walking the landscape

My love of walking in the natural world inspires the eco-dyeing and hand and machine stitch which produces my unique textile products. I started stitching as a young girl, taught by my grandmothers and went on to study fashion and textiles to degree level. Recently I went back to college to complete an MA in fine art textiles. My workshop in West Oxfordshire provides close access to the rural countryside which furnishes the plants I use for dyeing. Long walks with friends or shorter ones with our elderly border collie Lily, allows me to explore new places, revisit old haunts and experience different seasons and conditions which spark ideas for new pieces of jewellery or fabric patterns.
