I was so excited to share this with you I clicked too soon and published an unfinished post. Here’s the finished one…
There are so many exhibitions coming up where one can go and see beautiful hand embroidery “live”, so I thought I should tell you about one where you can see the work of students of the RSN : people who are still learning the techniques and skills just like I am. So often the photos we see in books are pieces done by professionals. We compare our skills to those in the photos and see a huge gap.
In late October there will be an exhibition of the work of the students at the RSN in Durham. Tracy A. Franklin is their instructor and judging from the photos in the flyer below, they have produced some beautiful work!
October is a long way away and if you want to be inspired before then, Tracy has created an RSN Durham Flick’r page to show the work of her students. I think this is a great idea and it’s so interesting to see what the certificate and the diploma students are doing.
If you want to know more about Tracy and her work, she graciously did an interview for The Unbroken thread which you can read here.
I’m hoping to do one of my remaining two modules of the certificate with Tracy at her studio Durham. Who knows, maybe in the future my work will be on the RSN Durham Flick’r page!
