Sheffield Embroiderers’ Guild Workshop

A Hausa robe, an Adinkra cloth and a raffia dance skirt were the inspiration for the workshop with members of the Guild. The eyelets on the robe are a lovely starting point, all massed together to create a wonderful surface.

Everyone tried various ideas based on the joining stitch on the raffia cloth and decorative seams on the Adinkra cloth.
