Judy Wilford - Embroidered Landscapes

Judy Wilford - Embroidered Landscapes

 In Embroidered Landscapes Judy shares her layering and stitching techniques, developed over many years, which will give embroidered work depth, distance and create aJudyWilford2 sense of the play of light inherent in low relief work.
The finished 12cm x 12cm landscape will be brimming with exciting texture and you will learn techniques you will want to use in the future. Bring your landscape to life using the wonderful media of fabric and thread.

Learn techniques of layering and surface stitch that Judy has developed over many years to create embroidered landscapes. This structured workshop requires the preparation of an embroidery frame, according to Judy’s instructions, before you arrive, and some homework so that you keep up with the processes taught on the second day.

Judy will supply the design. You will have opportunities to change both the flora and fauna as the workshop progresses. There will be 14 layers of fabric, with an overlay of silk organza, followed by surface stitching, to add brilliance and depth to your landscape.


Judy Wilford is an accomplished textile artist, recipient of a Churchill Fellowship, and renowned teacher and researcher. She has used traditional and contemporary stitching techniques to develop her own embroidering style over many years which captures the depth, detail and light of Australian landscape through the media of fabric and thread.
