Would you like to use the rich history of embroidery as a source of inspiration but aren’t sure where to start? This workshop will put into practice Margaret Oppen’s instruction to know our history but make work for the present. Learn a variety of research and design strategies that can be used to develop ideas for contemporary embroidery. 

Based on your choice of objects from the Guild Collection and resources from the library, you will work through a set of structured exercises which include writing, drawing and sampling. At the end of the day, you will have design ideas and skills for use in future work. 

All you need to begin with is an open mind and a willingness to experiment
