Drawn to Stitch
Janine Pope is a textile artist whose work is about imagination, memories and childhood narratives. She is a great observer of the ordinary and draws on life in particular places; Denmark, the South West and Norfolk. Working in a palette that reflects the muted colours and tones of her Danish heritage she uses natural and vintage cottons, linens and particularly beautiful worn patchwork to create soft sculpture characters and fabric pictures. Her work is expressive and she captures people out and about contemplating the unknown faces and their life journeys.
On this workshop you will learn some of the techniques Janine uses to draw, write and appliqué onto fabric. Bring sketches or photographs to help you capture the spirit of a special moment, person or pet and Janine will help you to draw, particularly people, to make a personal stitched picture. Her drawing and sewing style is very relaxed and quickly you will be able to achieve a lot. You can also experiment with some hand embellishing and embroidery whilst keeping to a Scandinavian colour palette.
