Chrissie Juno Mann

Based in the heart of the New Forest, I have been stitching since I was a child.  As an adult I trained at the Royal School of Needlework (RSN), Hampton Court Palace as a specialist in the art of hand embroidery.  I work as a tutor for the RSN at various locations across the UK.  

However, primarily I run my own embroidery business Cloud Juno and work as a freelance embroiderer and tutor all over the country running workshops and holidays for a variety of organisations.
I have also developed a wonderful online community and teach regular Zoom classes with students all around the world. 

I like to develop my own body of work and I won the category for Raised Embroidery in an Internationally Prestigious competition, run in conjunction with Inspirations Magazine and Beating Around the Bush convention 2018.  And my work ‘Bottled Curiosity’ featured in the Worshipful Company of Broderers exhibition “The Art of Embroidery”, at the Bankside Gallery in London.  

I recently self-published my two books ’50 Blackwork Patterns: Book 1 and Book 2.’, which has been positively received.  My aim is to encourage the art of hand embroidery making it accessible to all whilst capturing nature and the beauty of the world around us with thread.




I was very excited to attend a Creative Experience for the first time and joined Chrissie Juno Mann’s class and stitched the River Swan. A beautiful kit was provided and the tuition was first class along with the beautiful room with a view that we stitched in. Chrissie was a lovely fun tutor with an encouraging style and impressive experience of both teaching and stitch techniques. I quickly booked again with Chrissie for next year!

Thank you Nadine for the great time I got with Deborah, Deborah is such à talented person. I love her kit, she is a really good and patient teacher. I hope i will be able to get more lessons with her in the future. Merci. 


I love coming to Creative Experiences courses and thoroughly enjoyed Chrissie’s class at Les Carroz. She is an excellent teacher, very patient and encouraging, and a great personality. The working environment was very comfortable and well set up, and Chrissie had a good choice of projects rangng from fun and colourful crewelwork to very pretty raised work.
