‘Just Mossing About:Creating the New Zealand Forest Floor’ with Amy Baker

What a wonderful treat it was to have Amy Baker host a 2 day workshop at the Wellington Museum over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th August.

During “Just Mossing About: Creating the New Zealand Forest Floor” Amy encouraged us to learn, play and have fun while experimenting with stitch and techniques to create gorgeous texture and colour combinations.  

We came away with some stunning work.

Amy specializes in hand embroidery and textile art.  Living on the shores of Lake Wakatipu she draws her inspiration from the natural world and changing light that surrounds her.

If you get a chance to attend one of her workshops then it comes highly recommended.
