Come to a Gentlework workshop

'Paper Tales'

Telling stories in paper and stitch with guest tutor Christine Kelly of Gentlework.

32 High Street, Bishops Castle, Shropshire
Tuesday 30th July 2013

Learn to make a collage using paper ephemera, embellished with hand stitching and vintage haberdashery.  Watch the story unfold as you add words to your piece. These paper tales will then be made into greetings cards or your own piece of unique artwork. All materials will be provided but you may like to bring some personal mementos to include in your work.

The workshop runs from 10.30am – 3.30pm at a cost of £42 which includes all materials and a light lunch. Advance booking is essential. Please email me at  or contact theGALLERY on 01588 630555 to book.

all wrapped up


Now completed, the piece I started at the Primmy and Jessie Chorley workshop at Cowslip in Cornwall.  I've used a puttee for the backing, which I've quilted with a simple running stitch and then appliqued on linen leaves and grubby linen buttons.  I have a few of these and I like the dark green wool - I plan to use them for some other embroidered this space.
Thanks again to everyone who leaves a comment here - (or who just comes to look) - I really appreciate all your comments and love to hear from you - you can always pop to facebook too and say hello to me there.
