About the Course
Tina Francis is working hard to 'bring bargello back' in 2019, from wall hangings to tiny brooches. If you stand still long enough she will have added bargello to the edge of your lapel!
Join Tina in this one hour workshop where we will learn three different bargello stitch patterns, and stitch them onto plastic canvas which you can turn into a box when you get home from the show. A really relaxing type of stitching which also gives your brain a great workout!
The Tutor will provide full instructions to take away, wool, plastic canvas and John James Needles, at an additional cost of £4.50 payable at the workshop.
After winning a box of embroidery transfers in an auction Tina opened it to find a whole woman’s life in knitting and stitching patterns. Going away outfits, baby bootees and matinee jackets, school uniforms, embellishments for the home – right the way through to more modern baby knits. This woman had spent her whole life knitting and stitching love, a true artist. Tina started to look at other “home” crafts and how - because they were mainly completed by women - they were not seen as art. Tapestry needlepoint appealed because it combined print and texture. Tina finished some old tapestries found in second-hand shops and designed her first kit in 2014. Tina is a regular exhibitor at the large knitting and stitching shows selling her designs around the UK. Her artwork can be found in many a gallery too!
