Machine Embroidery with Katie Essam

Katie EssamĀ graduated in 2011 from the University of Hertfordshire with a BA Hons in Contemporary Applied Art,
She was struck with a passion for textiles. So having developed herĀ freehand machine embroidery, applique and many other textile techniques, she now combines them to make original, mixed media textile art pieces, inspired by the beauty in everyday objects and vintage.

Katie runs private Freehand Machine Embroidery and Applique Workshops. She especially loves making commissions for my customers, taking an image which is special to them, or a personal photo, of family, pets, and houses, giving them an original, tailored made piece of textile art.

Margaret Nicholson Life and Work

img_7658 img_7663 img_7666

Anthea Godfrey joined us in September 2016 and showed us a film on the life of her mother Margaret Nicholson. It was helpful background and indicated the importance of family to her. Anthea also brought us a lot of Margarets work to see which was stunning and the photographs don’t do justice to the depth of the work.
