In this in-person workshop, artist Clare Ormerod invites you to explore the creative power of nature through fibre, mark-making and embroidery. 

This in-person workshop at the College is a friendly and meditative space in which to explore your innate creativity. You'll journey within to connect with your imagination, and then journey out to express it through needle and thread. We'll work free from judgement, with a playful, inclusive spirit and heartfelt intention.

In this in-person workshop, we will:

  1. Enjoy a soundscape journey to allow your imagination to roam
  2. Invite the hand and mind to connect through loose sketching & free mark-making
  3. Transfer these marks and sketches to fabric
  4. Embellish these marks with embroidery techniques through meditative stitching

This in-person workshop is relaxing, meditative and experiential. Book now to discover a new and nourishing way to channel your inner creativity.


Entry requirements:

  • All are welcome.
  • No artistic experience necessary.


About Clare Ormerod's work:

Clare Ormerod's artwork is currently on show in an exhibition at the College. You will enjoy an opportunity to explore it during this workshop.

'Clare's work seeks to harness an ancient tradition of feminine wisdom and craft, and its ability to speak timeless truths. The making process embraces traditional techniques and materials with a wide range of mediums, textiles and textures. Initially a series of sketches on paper will be further developed into drawings on fabric that are then embroidered and worked on. The scale covers individual pieces just a few centimetres across right up to large quilts of over 4 square meters in size. The process is inspired by a deep appreciation of working with fibre, its form and shape. The embroidery is the finishing factor, the 'inking in' of the work that is essential for completion. Colours are direct and intuitive. There is an organic form and pattern which runs through the work, often in series, these echo the patterns and repetition which Clare observes both within in herself, the natural world and the 'otherworld'.'
