EXPLORING JAPANESE STITCHING, TASTER WORKSHOP
with OLIVE AVENUE
Lynette’s passion for stitching glimmered at 5 years of age drawing a picture of a pinafore style dress for her teddy bear. Knitted it in yellow mohair, she stitched it together with a bodkin. Growing up she was surrounded by artists, stitchers, knitters and seamstresses then embarked on multiple areas of textile studies.
Over the past 20 years, Lynette has delved into the vast world of embroidery, learning the history behind many stitches and their origins, continuing this today with her studies through the Royal School of Needlework.
