Organic Embroidery

Meredith Woolnough


Australian textile artist Meredith Woolnough creates replicas of nature using a delicate system of tiny stitches. Her artwork is breathtaking, and now for the first time Woolnough offers crafters and fibre artists a lesson in how to use the “organic embroidery” technique.

Look behind the scenes of her art process, from the initial fieldwork sketching and research that inspires her designs, to the production of her ethereal embroidered sculptures. She guides you through 12 creativity-prompting activities to help you begin your own mastery of this method.

As you learn to find your desired shape or pattern in nature, from sources like leaves, shells or coral, you will then use your sewing machine to turn it into openwork art. Her instructions offer simple but highly versatile techniques, and allow you space for your own creative approach. The book includes dozens of inspirational photos of Woolnough’s own art pieces.
