Art Textiles, Machine Embroidery, Textile Crafts etc
Corinne uses many different materials and techniques and is mostly inspired by the local landscape or historical artefacts. Her work is underpinned by drawing and preparatory artwork. The pieces are generally figurative and she particularly likes the challenge of producing three dimensional works.
Articles on her work have appeared in Embroidery, Stitch and Workbox magazines.
Having started work as an archaeological illustrator, Corinne then trained as a landscape architect and worked as a specialist in the restoration of historic parks and gardens for 20 years - mainly for the National Trust - before retraining as a teacher, gaining a PGCE.
Corinne trained at Kingston, Cheltenham and Gloucester, studying art, fashion, City & Guilds Embroidery, Felt, Machine Embroidery plus an HNC in Stitched Textiles. She has taught A level textiles, OCN levels 1 & 2 Textiles, C&G Feltmaking, as well as textile classes at art centres, museums, in the community and at home.
Corinne has been teaching at New Brewery Arts since it reopened and loves to see people grow in confidence, ability and awareness of their surroundings through learning to look and then interpreting their ideas in textiles.
She is a member of the Brunel Broderers, an exhibiting textile group. Recent exhibitions include Stroud International Textile Festival, Cirencester Museum, Small Gallery (Hereford), and The Curve (Churchdown School). In alternate years she exhibits as part of Cheltenham Open Houses.
