** NEW! Adult Evening Art Workshops with Lizzie Pearmine! **

We are very excited to be announcing this new adult evening art workshop starting this September!

Taught by the wonderful Lizze Pearmine, this series of workshops will focus on a combination of mixed media collage, printing and free machine embroidery with natural form imagery, which will be supplied.

Lizzie trained in fine arts and following a teaching career spanning over 16 years across both Kent and the Isle of Wight is currently teaching Art at Dulwich Prep. We feel very lucky that she will be sharing her passion for free machine embroidery, which Lizzie describes as ‘sketching with a sewing machine’, here at the bake and crafthouse! Please see below some examples of Lizzie’s beautiful work!

Workshops will be run as two three week blocks, bookable seperately, but which can be attended consecutively as Lizzie will work with participants continuing onto the second block to develop their skills, particularly working on emulsion transfer with free machining.

Each block bookable in advance at £120 per person, equivalent to £40 per session. Minimum 4 adults needed for workshop to run. Online booking through our website.

Refreshments provided!

Thursdays, 7.30-9.30pm, starting 14 September

Can’t make this class? Pop us an email, we are a compiling a list of those interested for future holiday workshops, daytime workshops and maybe occasional Saturday classes


Artists’ statement:

I worked as a textiles practitioner on the Isle of Wight for a short period which has been fundamental to my work. Being close to my retired parents on the Island, it felt significantly important to capture and document my family’s time and memories together there. Using ‘free machine embroidery’ as my chosen medium together with found recyclable and vintage papers, I like to think of it as sketching with a sewing machine, drawing memories that are so precious, whether this be a snippet or snap shot of my young daughter holding her Nanny’s hand or documenting the first time her little feet touched the sand, capturing these moments with the machine creates a ‘keeps sake’, not forgotten and treasured cloth that will forever imprint memories not just for my family and I but also to connect with others and evoke similar nostalgia from their own experiences.
