As a shortlisted artist in the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2016, I was invited to run a practical drop-in drawing project at the Jerwood Space London. This project was part of The STEAM Powered Big Draw Festival.

In my workshop, ‘The Drawn Thread’, I worked with participants to explore the enormous scope and versatility of drawing through stitch. Creating textures and patterns by working a stitch in different threads, playing with scale and spacing, and combining mark-making techniques. The workshop encouraged an experimental approach to stitch that drew on the imagination of each participant.
