Stitched Collage with Anne Brooke Textile Artist

Saturday 13th October 2018

We are delighted to welcome Anne Brooke to Needle & Thread! Anne is a mixed media textile artist, creating bespoke mixed media textile pieces of work that are combined with her love for drawing.

Instead of drawing with a pencil I use a needle and thread. I build up layers

of paper and fabric, re-working my pieces with paint, ink, dyes and stamps before drawing on the surface with a sewing machine and needle. My inspiration comes from the walks and journeys I go on.

Starting with the first step and 'My Right Foot' I collect, draw and photograph the treasures that can go unnoticed and these become the inspiration for my work.

The Workshop: Working from an inspirational image we will create a collage that up-cycles a range of papers to create a collage that will be ‘drawn’ over with your sewing machine and it can then be further embellished. This is the main technique I use in the majority of my work.

£75 including materials, equipment, mid morning cake (of course) and a healthy lunch!

If you wish to mount your piece bring along a box canvas (No bigger than A4) or these will be available from Anne to buy on the day for £5.

Materials will be provided, but some things you might like to bring along if you have them:

An inspirational image to work from.
Any wallpaper, old maps, paper bags, envelopes, wrapping paper, handmade paper, any paper in your stash, etc. Just make sure it is not too thick.
Snippets of fabric
Buttons, beads, embellishments etc.
Camera / sketchbook to record the day / technique.
