Workshops at the Makit Fenland Fair 2022

Loetitia Gibier, aka Korry, is an obsessive embroiderer, teacher and textile artist. City & Guilds qualified and formally a trustee of the Embroiderers Guild. Her work is increasingly gaining recognition internationally and within the UK.

Be the First!

Korry has produced three original Christmas Gnomes embroidery designs for the workshop, Kringle, Krangle and Kandy Kane fun designs, ideal for a Christmas Tree, table, or card decoration. Each gnome is approximately five inches tall, and you choose the gnome you wish to make on joining the workshop.

Kringle

Krangle

Kandy Kane

You will be among the first to enjoy working on these fun designs, which will be released to the market in mid-October.

The workshop is restricted to a maximum of twelve participants and will start at 11.00 am and finish at 1.00 pm.

The workshop cost £ 25.00, including all materials.

We provide:

The background fabric, generous quantities of Madeira Lana thread in five colours, four different colours of felt, white Chenille thread, needles, comprehensive instructions, and templates.

An 8 x 5-inch oval hoop on which to work your chosen design and to use as a frame when finished.

We ask you to bring to the workshop:

A small pair of embroidery scissors and a scissor suitable for cutting out the paper templates.

Exhibitions to Inspire

3’s A Crowd - The Irregular Textile Exhibition

3’s A Crowd is a relatively new exhibiting group formed by three respected and talented East Anglian textile artists, Ruth Holmes, Anita O’Neill and Angie Hill, to present their work as individual artists and within a group.

As the exhibition title suggests it is irregular, no boundaries have been placed on its content. The work includes pieces that range from the traditional to the experiential and which have been created using a multitude of techniques and materials reflecting the personality of its members,

Come along and be wowed by this display of textile art.

Angie Hill – The Sun Setting

Ruth Holmes – Filament

Anita O’Neill – Eau Brink Pond

Demonstrations

Details of exhibitors offering demonstrations will be released in July 2022
