Here is a collage of just some of the fantastic work that was produced over the last couple of days during my 2 day workshop. Over the two days we explored the design process through visual research, drawing and design development and translating the drawings into free machine stitched samples.
Thank you ladies for all of your hard work, I have thoroughly enjoyed your company over the last couple of days.
You can view details of my 2 day workshops and availability on my website www.joannefrankel.co.uk and contact me through the 'contact page' to enquire about bookings.
I was honoured to be invited along to 'Touchwood' this weekend at Marbury Park in Northwich. The exhibition from a local group of contemporary textile artists that meet at the park had some stunning pieces of work inspired by the surrounding woodland and parkland.
This is Lorraine Finches beautiful piece of work which she designed and developed during one of my two day workshops.
Keep up the good work all the ladies of the 'Textiles in the Park' textile art group and thank you very much for inviting me.
I have finally finished this particularly large piece called 'Beginnings', it is part of my 'Collection of Rarities' series. I imagine it to be a prelude to my cabinets, an aquarium of micro-organisms where the samples have been collected from.
I have 1 space left on my 2 day workshop on Monday March 19th and Tuesday March 20th. If are interested in joining us the details of the workshop can be found on the 2 day workshop page on my website and you can contact me via the contact page.
I am over the moon to be featured in this months 'Be Creative with Workbox' magazine. The article can be seen in my 'Publications' page if you would like to see it.
I've just completed a new series of works titled 'Carousel', I'm hoping that these works will be coming to the 'Hand of the Maker' exhibition at the Chelsea College of Arts in London in July.
I am over the moon to have been selected to exhibit at this years Society of Designer Craftsmens annual exhibition at Chelsea College of Arts in London.

I'm excited to announce my new 1 day workshop which is a follow-on for those students that have attended the 2 day 'Design-to-Stitch' workshop and feel that they could benefit from a little extra support in developing and exploring their own personal designs that were created during the previous 2 days.
If you would like more information please go to the 1 day workshop page on the website.
I recently started to make these felt brooches based on the designs in my textile art, particularly my 'Collection of Rarities ' series. They are currently for sale at The Arc Gallery in Chester and Seagrass Gallery in West Kirby.
