CD Preview City & Guilds Embroidery Part 2

I completed my Part 2 in June 2003 and was nominated for the City & Guilds Medal for Excellence.

Rather than send photographs of work I created a CD which in addition to Course work. covered Assessment Pieces, English Embroidery, Foreign Embroidery, Research for Design and Extended Samples. There are over 200 detailed images of finished work, backup material and sketch book pages included on the CD.

The following images are a small selection from the CD which contains over 200 images.

Please contact me for postage outside the UK.
