Welcome to some of the fantastic work of Textile Artist and tutor ANNE BURROW who came to talk to the Rochdale Branch of the Embroiderers Guild.
Anne's display of work covered a real array of techniques.
She loves to experiment with different products, materials and colours.
Members were spellbound with Anne's explanation of the myriad of ways you can manipulate fabric and paper.
At the end of her talk members crowded round all the samples wanting to get a closer look.
We looked at pieces that had been handstitched, machine embroidered, dyed,
stitched paper, rusted threads & fabrics.
Samples made from Lutrador, soluble fleece, rug weaving
The display was overwhelming.
Painted calico backgrounds which were then printed onto via a computer.
It is hoped that Anne will come back to the Guild in the near future and run a workshop for us, possibly on stitching and weaving on rug canvas, as seen in the picture below.
So for all you stitchers or admirers of textile art if you want to see some more of Anne's work pop over to
or be sure to book on one of her ever popular workshops/courses.
Courses held at Alston Hall, Longridge, Lancashire get booked up very quickly.
