Take a closer look at the green world around us.

Discover unexpected detail through focusing on leaves: the structure of veins, surface textures, cellular structures, evidence of disease or the presence of little creatures. To create unique small works of art or working samples, Ruth Issett and Dorothy Tucker will guide you through layering, hand stitching directly into fabric and cutting away which will result in new ideas and exciting textile surfaces.

Ruth Issett’s work is governed by an overriding excitement and passion for the use of colour. By restricting the processes and the materials used, she enjoys discovering new ideas to research and understand. Working with different dyed colours and combining with selected stitched colour, Ruth creates original and vibrant work. The process is fascinating and leads to endless possibilities. Ruth exhibits with the Textile Study Group and PRISM.

Dorothy Tucker works from her home in South West London. She likes to be out-of-doors working directly from what she sees and feels. Some of these drawings and paintings lead into her contemporary textile pieces. Her choice to stitch by hand is informed by her research into kantha, a form of embroidered quilt from Bangladesh.  Dorothy exhibits with the Textile Study Group and PRISM.
