Meets on the Second Thursday of the month 10am – 2pm
Exploring the idea of slow stitching, patterns, shapes and textures.
Using stitch (fabric and thread) for mark making and as a repetitive and therefore meditative process.
There will be several ways of exploring and participants may like to play with one or more of these.
1: Traditional methods such as Boro, Kantha, Kogin and Sashiko using straight stitches such as running stitch
2: Exploring one stitch at a time eg. fly stitch or buttonhole stitch to see how far you can go with that stitch
3: Looking at how multiple repetitive stitches form textures
Explore different fabrics and threads and combinations of these.
Meeting at St David’s Church Hall, Aphrasia St., Newtown. Bring Lunch.
