We were reading the brand new book Blackwork Embroidery by Bernadette Baldelli (Which has been published by Search Press and we will be reviewing it very very soon!) Anyway…we came across this little creature…a blackwork mouse and we just had to give him / her a shout out! Who knew this traditional embroidery technique could be so…well..cute?!
Want to read more about this technique? Follow this link to purchase your copy of this artists book, which will instruct you how to create your very own Blackwork mouse!
As a freelance artist, designer, lecturer and tutor (how do I narrow down that description?!) I have been contracted by numerous arts organizations to provide Talks, Workshops’ and Masterclasses’ in Textiles, Print Making and Fine Art subjects. These include branches of the Embroiderers’ Guild, Textile Study Groups and The Women’s Institute. Every year I teach at The Knitting and Stitching shows and exhibit with the Artist in Action stand. Currently I am building up to my exhibition at The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia, London this spring; having also written articles or had work illustrated in Stitch, Inspired, Embroidery, Selvedge, Daphne’s Diary, Prima (online), Cloth Paper Scissors and the Batsford book ‘Be Creative with Textile Art.'
