Embroidery Magazine Nov/Dec 2022 (issue: November/December 2022)
Embroidery Magazine Nov/Dec 2022
From stitchers just starting out, to a master embroiderer, the November/December issue features something for everyone to enjoy. We go behind the scenes of ‘Jennyland’, the enterprise that has grown up around the expert skills of Jenny Adin-Christie; and take a peek at the sewing room of Corinne Young, who makes 3D flowers from her light-filled studio. Elsewhere, Fleur Woods from New Zealand discusses her stitch-paint method and Claire Mort delivers pop art pow. We also visit the ‘fairy trees’ of Ireland; and meet some of the incredible living dolls of Annie Montgomerie; while Cath Janes explains how embroidering the deepest recesses of the human body has brought her two years’-worth of commissions. We have features, too, on the felted feats produced by Gladys Paulus and go behind the scenes at the museum with Jane Hoodless. Finally, we take a sneak peek at two of the entries for the Hand & Lock Prize, and find out what it takes to win a competition to dress Grayson Perry. Enjoy!
There’s plenty more to tempt you, though:
Meet Fleur Woods, who lives in an idyllic area of New Zealand and is ready to share her unique stitch-paint method via an online course with Fibre Arts Take Two.
Annie Montgomerie’s anthropomorphic animal dolls are a little bit like Marmite...
Pop art stitcher Clare Mort’s star is in the (rapid) ascendancy.
Meet master embroiderer Jenny Adin-Christie whose new book on whitework displays her fine artistry in the method.
FIRST PERSON: THE SEWING ROOM Corinne Young’s workroom is part of her 17th century cottage and surprisingly light.
FIRST PERSON: ‘THE EMBROIDERER WILL SEE YOU NOW...’ Beset by health problems, Cath Janes turned to embroidering the darker recesses of the human body, with surprising results.
FIRST PERSON: THE FAIRY TREES OF IRELAND
From County Meath, Eileen McNulty writes of the fairy trees of her childhood and local folklore and the disasters that would befall those who chop them down.
FIRST PERSON: ALL AT SEA
Cas Holmes is an artist-traveller becalmed by coronavirus and her partner’s illness, all of which has fed into her travelling show.
GIVE FLEECE A CHANCE
Gladys Paulus works with fleece, a physical process through which she seems to imbue feeling in her felt creations, many of which are based around her Dutch/Javanese heritage.
CURIOUSER & CURIOUSER
For Jane Hoodless the museum (and the quirkier the museum the better) is a place of awe, wonder and inspiration, not least for the arcane pieces that sometimes exist therein.
