What it is really like to be a Designer Maker? Part Two
Keep making with embroidering, stitch and print at the heart and forefront of my work. To have a solo exhibition of more personal work outside my shop and to continue to travel worldwide with my workshops. Plus keep stocking and refreshing and creating kits and DIY projects for my online shop which can be found via www.jessiechorley.com
So there we go…another insight into a designer maker!
I am hoping myself to get my work Professionally photographed soon, so there will be an update on that in a future Ailist!
Jessie has also managed to publish her own book. We will be reviewing it very soon!
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.'
