Embroidered and Appliqued Illustrations with Jessie Chorley -13th June 2020

Hope and Elvis would not be the same without Jessies wonderful workshops , such a wonderfully inspiring tutor, it never fails to produce wonderful textile pieces to treasure.

This most favourite and popular workshop will focus and explore Jessie’s signature style of hand embroidery combined with her unique approach to applique and patchwork

Jessie will show you how she uses her needle and thread both as a drawing tool and also to hold in place her chosen fabrics and found items

Jessie will be showing you how she hand cuts simple shapes out of fabrics and appliques then to her base fabrics to create a narrative, familiar shapes can be a house, a moon, a flower, a river, the stars above or a simple tree

Jessie will work with you directly to cut and create such shapes during this workshop using her pre-cut paper templates

This workshop will also explore Jessie’s unique style of hand embroidered text and lettering that she creates and writes with her needle and threads

As a participant please bring any favourite plain fabrics as a base to start your illustations on. This is not essential as Jessie will work with you to create your own illustation using the fabrics provided here at the Hope & Elvis studio combined with items that Jessie will be providing for sale from her London shop and also you will have full free use of Jessie’s specialist Embroidery threads
