BUY THIS WORKSHOP ALL WORKSHOPS About the Tutor: Molly Brown Molly has experimented with textiles since childhood. This interest has remained an important strand throughout her life. After a 35 year career as an Occupational Therapist in the NHS, Molly changed direction in 2016. She focused more on teaching skills to others. Doing this at The Knitting & Stitching Shows and locally to her home in Chester, also working on her own projects. Molly has mastered a wide repertoire of skills in both Knitting and Sewing. She teaches a wide range of knitting techniques, from Entrelac to Magic Loop. But sewing is where her strongest passion lies. The back bone of this is in making clothes. However, she has a keen interest in exploring the variety of ways to embellish fabrics, especially by Shisha, free motion embroidery and Quilting. It might look like these are all just different tangled threads, but Molly aims to bring it all together into a beautiful fabric of coherent and unique wearable art.
