Today is a very exciting day as we have a new guest tutor’s course to bring you in the shape of the ‘Surreal Stitches with Mother Eagle‘ Course!
I’m sure we dont need to tell you about Mother Eagle or the awesome work she produces, but on the off chance that she is someone you haven’t come across yet then let me take the opportunity to introduce you to your new favourite instagram fix @mother_eagle_embroidery
Katie Tume is an embroidery artist from Brighton, East Sussex. Born in 1980, she is a fifth-generation needleworker who first learned her craft at her mother’s knee. She attended the Surrey Institute of Art and Design as a Fashion and Illustration student, but is largely self-taught in hand embroidery techniques.
Katie’s work is influenced by folklore, mythology, burial customs and the old Gods. She is currently working on projects around our disappearing natural world, and lost species which have become her signature style.
The Surreal Stitches with Mother Eagle Course combines her style and techniques into a new artwork created for this course, the Divine Mushroom. Booking is now available for this class where you will be learn this original artwork from the artist herself. Follow the link here for more details and to secure your place.
