Judy Wilford: Telling Tales – Simple Stitches

Judy Wilford is a fantastic teacher with years of experience in embroidery and teaching. She is most well known for her intricate  miniature landscapes, however, she has also practised other forms of embroidery including Kantha. Kantha stitching was traditionally used in Bangladesh and parts of India to recycle saris and to give hand sewn gifts to husbands. It involves mostly parallel straight stitches of contrasting thread on a plain background.

In this workshop Judy gave us the task of designing 4 small pictures to be stitched using a few simple techniques. She emphasised the need for simplicity and bold motifs. The 4 small pictures should relate to each other or tell a story. Below you can see some of the examples of students’ work during the weekend.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
