Do you love textiles? Then this is for you.
Textile, Stitch, Sew will give you the opportunity to develop your own creativity and ideas through stitch and sewing.
This will include learning about a range of embroidery stitches, how to collage using textiles along with simple print techniques.
Slow down, explore, experiment while connecting with new people.
These sessions over 6 weeks will introduce you to various simple techniques. We will produce either one or a series (everyone works in a different way) of small textile samples that can be displayed as it is or made into something else. Giving yourself time to sew and stitch can be a helpful way to find focus and relaxation.
This course will give you the opportunity to try different creative techniques, get absorbed in art making and have fun. You will be using basic materials including fabric scraps/ unwanted clothes; be prepared to rummage! Some materials will be provided but others you will need to provide yourself, e.g. pins, needles, sewing thread. A full list will be sent once you’ve enrolled.
Sign up here – register your interest and we will get in touch to confirm your place.
