Explore Contemporary Whitework,develop  designs, and be guided on threads, fabrics, stitches and techniques to use in your work.  

Start with an introduction to the history of traditional Whitework and the stitches used, as well as Helen's Contemporary Whitework research and practice, including her 2018 exhibition Lives across the Centuries: the untold stories. You will be introduced to artists whose practice is influenced by these methods, and their work, to draw inspiration from. 

Experiment with fabrics, papers, threads and stitches to create samples using surface stitchery, lacy holes and needle lace, pulled and drawn work, and layering used in traditional and contemporary whitework. The use of fabric and thread, both traditional and unconventional, will be demonstrated.
