Description

Stitching should be relaxing and grounding, but sometimes it isn't. These three 2.5 hour Sunday afternoon classes will help you slow down and enjoy the process. Your tutor Robyn will lead you through a series of exercises so you stitch more and think less. You will improve your skills and increase your intuition.

Date: Sundays, 21 January, 4 February and 11 February 2018  Time: 1:00-3:30 pm

Class fee: $169 (includes most materials)

About the Tutor: Robyn Steel-Stickland has a qualification in art therapy, and around 20 years experience teaching crafts and textiles. This class was inspired by Robyn's own stitching practice, the utter gorgeousness of silk, wool and cotton thread, and the intriguing history of vintage threads and textiles.
