Embroidering The Sycamore Gap Tree

Course Description:

This course is available for experienced students and those who completed  the “Fundamentals of Embroidery” course in the last semester. The number of places is very restricted and priority will be given to these students who attended the Fundamentals course with an attendance record of 80%.

The iconic Sycamore Gap Tree, which was standing next to Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland, England, was felled on the morning of 28 September 2023. The outpouring of anger and sadness was immense. Many people shared their photographs of the Tree on social media in a wonderful variety of photographic moods.

You will be given a basic design of the tree and its surroundings and then you will choose your own colour scheme and carry out your own interpretation of the image, which reflects your personality. This is course is an opportunity to learn how to transfer your feelings about an object into an evocative embroidered piece. The students will need to provide their own materials and tools for the course. The teacher will provide the inspirational photographs of the Tree and support via email and WhatsApp through the entire course.

I am a weaver, embroiderer and fibre arts teacher from Poland, living in Ireland since 2004. My textile art has been exhibited in group exhibitions in Ireland, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania and Taiwan. I am a recipient of several awards in Ireland and abroad.

My main focus in my art practice is on minimal woven art and medieval styles, techniques and images in embroidery.

I have been teaching various fibre arts courses and workshops from 2013 in Co. Dublin, Dublin City, Co. Louth, Co. Wicklow and Co. Down. In 2018/2019 I was working for Creative Spark, Dundalk, providing embroidery workshops for community projects. Since 2016 I teach various workshops at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre in Naul. In 2020 I started teaching fibre arts courses at Malahide Community School.

I am an author of a large scale tapestry Women of Fingal (completed in March 2021) funded by Creative Ireland and commissioned by Fingal County Council.

I practice historical fencing with sabre, longsword and sword & buckler as a member of HEMA Ireland (the national Historical European Martial Arts federation).
