I had long admired the work of Emily Jo Gibbs so when I decided I wanted to do a portrait of my friend in stitch I approached Emily to see if she could give me a one-to-one. Over the course of 3 days (two days with Emily sandwiched either side of one day on my own) I was guided through all the processes in order to complete the portrait in my own time. It took many more days of intermittent stitching to finish the portrait but I am really more than pleased with the end result that I couldn’t have achieved without the careful and helpful guidance of Emily.

One to one teaching

I charge £250 a day for a one to one session in South London. 
In one day you could expect to have made a textile collage and have started the hand stitching. You could then finish the piece on your own or come back again for another session if you felt you wanted more guidance.

Thank you once again for such an enjoyable course. You are a very inspiring artist and teacher!
