Judy Wilford: Telling Stories – A Narrative Embroidery 24-25 February @ Go Create! New England
Feb 24 @ 9:30 am – Feb 25 @ 4:00 pm

‘Burning the stubble’ Judy Wilford at Go Create

We all recall memories or impressions, fleeting or substantial, of the natural world: its
elements, its wildlife and their habitats or the marks left by man and settlement. The subject
of the story is yours to choose.
The interpretation of your subject may be realistic, impressionistic or a collage of related
images. Bring it to life using the wonderful mediums of fabric, thread and stitch.
The Workshop involves the processes of designing, constructing and stitching a ‘low relief’
panel of approx. 25x30cms.

Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England
Sep 28 @ 9:30 am – Sep 30 @ 4:00 pm
Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England

Although Lauran is a contemporary lace maker and will concentrate primarily on contemporary bobbin lace, the techniques, covered in the class, would benefit the traditional lace maker who wishes to make traditional pieces using wire. These techniques can also be used for larger dimensional sculptural pieces although she will cover small-scale jewellery applications. Lauran will explore two important aspects; focusing on the special methods of working with wire will help the student understand the structural integrity inherent to metal and its potential for dimensional design, emphasis on proper tensioning and the technique of working the wire around the pins, in a systematic manner to achieve precise stitches will be covered in detail. Additional she will cover methods for making all those wire ends “disappear”.
