Anne Shearn - Honorary Life Member

I am now a retired adult education tutor who taught City and Guilds embroidery and other classes at Swanley Adult Education Centre.


I am a past council member of the Embroiderers’ Guild.

Colour and texture are important to me and are inspirational to my work.


Over the years I have been very interested in natural dyes and use the dyed silks and wools in my work.

I have developed peg loom weaving and rug techniques of hooking and prodding.


I have constructed hangings based on my photographs of the sunflowers observed in France.


Sunflowers have been a developing inspiration for my work.
