About

Stitching Botanical is an exciting and evolving journey to create a permanent collection of textile works for the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Created and run by Marilyn Caruana since 2015, over 80 volunteers meeting twice a month have created five special collections of stunning and evocative embroidery. These feature Welsh county flowers, rare Welsh plants, medicinal plants, habitats, pollinating insects, meadow plants, and many beautiful fungi. There is no structured teaching at the Stitching Botanical sessions, but guidance and materials are available to all our members. It is the buzz of ideas, energy and enthusiasm that is infectious, stimulating and productive. We are tapping into a long tradition of textile work in Wales, and believe this group may be the first of its kind to be working in a botanic garden on commissioned projects. Please tell us if you know of any others!

We use many different techniques including appliqué, fine hand embroidery, machine embroidery, fabric colouring and manipulation, wet and dry felting, and raised embroidery. New members are always welcome and anyone wishing to join the group should contact volunteer coordinator Jane Down at [email protected] or call 01558 667118 for details.
