... the threads of history....

At the end of September, Rosalind Wyatt will be leading her first workshop with us, Text and Textiles.  Rosalind was at 
the 35th Art in Action in Oxford last month, where she was demonstrating ‘writing with a needle'  on the latest donation to her project The Stitch Lives of London’ – a shirt belonging to the actor Jude Law when he played Hamlet, and for which she won second prize!

Rosalind has coined the phrase, ‘Trans-sewn’ which she describes as the act of hand stitching directly onto a textile to emulate the personal characteristics of a particular handwriting.

Never still for a moment, she will be at this year’s Wilderness "NOW" Festival , from 9th-11th August,  giving free daily workshops – check the website for timings
