Embroidery Talks

    1. Beginnings and Endings

      Everything has a beginning and an end, but their meaning is frequently blurred and very often the end becomes a new beginning. This talk is about an exhibition of textile art that explores beginnings, endings and the bits in between.

    2. Thread Rocks
      A talk about my exhibition in Crown St Gallery, Darlington, exploring how embroidery can be used to explore our landscape and even the creation of our planets and universe.

    3. A Whole Load of Holes
      Holes have been created in fabric for decoration for many centuries.  This talk reviews various methods by which this has been acheived and compares the traditional approach with the more contemporary effects.

    4. The Road from Inspiration to Art
      Most of my work has an underlying meaning. This talk with slides goes through a variety of pieces that I have worked, looking at their interpretation. The talk includes an outline of the design concepts that I have developed and used in my embroideries.

    5. Expressions of Faith
      A look at how Christian meaning or symbolism has been incorporated into both commissioned designs and other work.

    6. Christmas Traditions
      A look at traditions and how they relate to our typical Christmas decorations, particularly in textiles, accompanied by a hands-on time of making a Christmas bauble with a difference
