United Kingdom

Pippa has always been inspired by the natural world, which surrounds her in her rural Wiltshire home. She brings this love to life in her delicately crafted needlework designs. Her passion is to create 3 dimensional designs, which leave the viewer wondering if they are looking at an embroidery or the real thing. You can read our full interview with Pippa here.

A creative young designer with heaps of talent, we are so excited to welcome Pippa this year!

Pippa's 2022 Festival Workshops

Stumpwork Parasol Mushroom

Time Zone 1: Offered as a two part workshop – 15-16 January (Part 1), 22-23 January (Part 2)

This class is inspired by the Parasol Mushroom which can often be found in woodlands and grassy areas.

This class incorporates a range of traditional and more modern Stumpwork techniques and is worked in stages to make it manageable. The final piece will be mounted into a beautiful wooden frame ready to hang on the wall.

It is an interesting way to study both Stumpwork techniques and an amazing natural object!
