Anne Stark

My interest in needlework began with dressmaking, and in the past I ran a business designing, making and selling children's clothes, featuring applique work. Over the last twelve years I have concentrated on creative embroidery, attending evening classes and classes run by the WEA. In 2005 I completed the City and Guilds Part I in Design and Creative Embroidery and two years later completed the Diploma.  I enjoy using mixed media, experimenting with textiles and other materials.  I enjoy the challenge and focus that come from exhibiting my work with One Step On.
