Embroiderers' Guild in Salisbury

A picture for Embroiderers-Guild-Salisbury

WE ARE FOR those who enjoy 'Embroidery'- the embellishment and manipulation of fabric and fibres in all forms, flat, 3D and low relief. In other words, everything to do with textiles, thread, colour and texture... Embroidery ranges from the work of YBA Tracey Emin and clothes designer Manish Arora to the frontals, hassocks and robes found in Salisbury Cathedral and your local Church via such stuff as flower stitched jeans, crazy patchwork, soft sculpture & quilting, cording, cross- stitch, canvas-work, and creative use of the sewing machine... You'll find us with felt, papier mache, leather, lace and soldering irons.

EMBROIDERY needn't be terribly precious, fine or fiddly. People can use whatever they like if it helps produce desired effects - organza or old bricks, real gold thread or the 'gold' plastic wrappers from food. Paint, print, stitch, paper, glue, canvas and clay - Embroiderers are allowed to do anything, including fun. Have a look at the Salisbury Hospital lobby panel.
