Our exhibition shows work completed by ‘All Directions’, a creative stitched textiles group who meet fortnightly in Lichfield to learn and explore new techniques to incorporate into their own work. If you would like to know more about the group, then please contact the tutor Jane Lockley. Jane@fairwayss.co.uk
Meeting on a regular basis, we individually create books that demonstrate a wide and eclectic mix of stitch and mixed media. We transpose the ordinary humble book into a feast of design, texture and colour.
