About us

Who is Korry?

 Well it's me! My name is Loetitia Gibier and I am French. I have been living in the UK for a while now. Korry is my nickname. It comes from the word Korryghan, a little Celtic devil. One of the Korryghans stays awake at night to do the housework and mainly the needlework needed in the house, sometimes they get bored and do a little mischief to the humans of the house, like stitching their socks to their trousers.  My father gave me that nickname at a period of my life when I had just left uni where I had picked up embroidery. I was stitching most nights until the early hours of the morning and my parents would find complete pieces of work in the morning or for their birthday they had absolutely no idea I was working on. Having an already busy life I still often stay up late at night to make things. I just need to create! 

What do I do?

 

I am a textile artists and an embroidery tutor specialised in hand embroidery. Stumpwork, Goldwork and silk shading are my go to techniques, but I am interested in almost every hand embroidery techniques.

I am absolutely obsessed with colour so I am always on the look out for new goldwork supplies and ended up opening this shop. You will also find the kit I designs as well as some of my work for sale. 

Don't forget to visit the workshop and event page in case you are interested to learn embroidery or to have me come to your event or even just say Hi!

Qualifications & Trainings

 After several years of doing various weekend classes, I did my City And Guild Level 1 and 2 in Stumpwork. But I always need to learn so I am also currently doing the formal training of Japanese Embroidery via a JEC accredited tutor and I started the Royal School of Needlework Certificate in Hand Embroidery last year.
