Adventures in textile seascapes

We were delighted to welcome textile artist Lizzie Wall to lead a two-day workshop at Fenham in February. The workshop was site specific to the beautiful coastline around the farm, Lindisfarne and the Berwick area and was specially designed by Lizzie to be run in the new Granary building at Fenham.

A range of coastal perspectives provided the inspiration for this landscape textile adventure. Techniques included: working with raw edge appliqué, free machine stitching, hand and machine embroidery, textural layering using silk fibres.

The panels created would form a wall hanging, cushion or bag front.
