Illustrative Embroidery Workshop (July 2019)

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/stVro58r)


She's back! If magical underwater fishing scenes with dancing, crescent-moon crowned mermaids appeals / galaxies far far away / or perhaps life size kitty cats holding hands with young girls whilst dancing through the tulips is floating your whimsical sail boat / or even a night sequence of swans and turquoise blue frogs frolicking under the stars is more your dream, then please welcome Irem Yazici from Eskisehir, Turkey.  

Irem Yazici is a self taught fibre artist. She works as a full time artist in her home studio dividing her practice between hand embroidered accessories and creating one of a kind artworks. Inspired by the whimsical things and surrealism, her work is a combination of her illustration and embroidery practices where she explores through colour and texture.

This workshop will include some classic stitching techniques, but more importantly how to freestyle hand embroider, demonstrating how to mix techniques together in a piece to create bold textures and patterns.
