Course summary:

Join renowned textile artist Anne Kelly for a day of hand embroidery and textiles collage to create a beautiful piece of work referencing the stunning beach front surroundings at Atelier Beside the Sea. Using coastal plants, shells and the famous beach huts as inspiration, the aim is to produce a central image, collaged and added to with lace, ribbon and stitch.

Anne will expertly guide you through the process of layering materials, using mixed media textiles and hand stitching to create a piece of truly unique art work.
