Here are some more images from The Craft Sessions: in particular from my embroidery classes. It was rather special to have a whole day to devote to walking outside, gathering branches and leaves, drawing them, and translating those forms onto linen. I loved seeing how the different students approached the work. Even down to small things like the thread colours and forms they chose. On the Sunday, we made 'modern samplers' - you can see Anna above with her piece.
I'm feeling inspired by the students to try some different colour combinations and stitches. And to see if I can somehow replicate that long, quiet time chatting and working, with no phone, computer or other distractions.
