About The Workshop:
In this workshop, Corinne will teach you how to make 3D embroidered flowers incorporating stumpwork methods. You will be able to take part in this workshop using either hand or machine embroidery, however the results will be slower with hand sewing. Once completed your flowers could be put on stems and displayed in a vase, used to decorate hats/head-dresses and other accessories or incorporated into you textile work to add texture and dimension.

Your Artist – Corinne Young
I am a textile artist from the UK. I create embroidered 3D artwork, bespoke furnishings and accessories.
I have always loved to stitch, and have done so ever since I can remember. My father and several ancestors on both sides of my family worked in the textile industry, and my mother, aunt and grandmother were all keen needlewomen.
I completed a degree in Textile Design in 2003. I also have qualifications and work experience in interior design and decoration and gallery curation.
My work is inspired by two major things – the flowers and insects I study in my garden, and the artefacts to be found in historic houses. The floral aspect gives my work its colour, texture and form, and the methods I use, the style of the work and its 3D quality comes from the study of historic artefacts such as 17th century stump work caskets. I like to use vintage fabrics and papers to create my work, and also love to stitch into my handmade linen paper, which I make in large sheets in my studio.
