What you'll do
Treat yourself to a creative day learning a new skill at my studio and embroider a custom map. Working with a map of your choice, you will learn to develop a drawing of the map, transfer your drawing on to fabric, use a variety of embroidery stitches & leave with a beautiful piece of art that you can frame. The small group size means you will get lots of one-on-one help and top tips. All materials are included. All tools and equipment will be provided.
I’m an award-winning textile artist and experienced educator. I create characterful textiles for people who love simple, timeless style. My special love is maps, and I make large-scale embroidered wall hangings of city maps. My work is held in several private collections in the UK and internationally and can be seen at some of the most discerning galleries in the UK and the US. Working from my studio in buzzy Central London, I find inspiration from the energy and moods of the city, but also from the unforgettable colours and textures of my childhood in India.
