SLOW STITCH COURSE
Sun, Mar 12, 2017, 2:00 PM – Sun, Dec 10, 2017, 4:00 PM GMT
Mindful and contemplative stitching is a way to engage with the textile art within us in a creative and reflective way.
Over the 9 monthly sessions.
I will teach some contemplation and mindful ways of being alongside the techniques and style of this movement in textiles.
We will cover reflective sketch book keeping, creating a stitch journal, a large variety of stitch techniques, colour palettes, design essentials, Japanese boro, natural dyeing and staining, ending up with a period to design, develop and create a piece of personal art.
Beginners are most welcome as well as those with experience of making textiles at what ever level.
You will need a note book pencil/pen, a variety of threads and sewing needles, embroidery hoop if you use one, embroidery pencil or tailors chalk, basic sewing kit, plain / simple base fabrics in neutral colours ... vintage is especially good and we will discuss further requirements as the course progresses .
Cross Threads in Tankerton has all you need as does Anchors Aweigh vintage in Whitstable !
There will be opportunities to work in silence as well as time for socialising over tea and cake !
The course runs every 2nd Sunday of the month except August 2pm-4pm
Look forward to seeing you !
