About the Course
Whether you love colour, are a little bit afraid of it, or want to use it in a different way, this 90 minute workshop is for you.
The first 20 minutes or so will see us using our colourwheels to learn about triads, complimentaries and more. We will then use this knowledge to create a fantastic piece of Bargello stitching to display in the frame provided for all to see!
You will leave with a beautiful piece of wall art displaying your new found colour mastery.
After winning a box of embroidery transfers in an auction Tina Francis 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!
