Slow Stitch Workshop


Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/NefpvWEr)

Description

Slow stitching centres around the “make do and mend” and “waste not, want not” ethos of yesteryear. It is a nod to the generations that came before ours in which reusing and recycling were necessary and admirable.This is not a complicated process which relies on numerous fancy, perfectly executed stitches and fastidious neatness, but rather, it's about embracing the timeworn nature of our materials, and the individuality of our stitching methods.

In this 4 hour workshop with textile artist, Lisa Mattock, draw inspiration from the Japanese stitching methods of boro (the art of mending rags or scraps of cloth) and sashiko (a form of decorative of reinforcement stitching) to create your own slow stitch artwork using a mixture of repurposed, recycled, inherited, and vintage textiles.

You will also learn simple stab stitch techniques for connecting pieces to form a background, before adding a stitched silhouette as a finishing embellishment.

Come pick up a needle and thread and lose yourself in this meditative process where simplicity is key.

The Slow Stitch workshop was an absolute joy. I was inspired by Lisa's many examples and her beautifully presented kits. Lisa had a clear step by step process for beginners like me, but the beauty of slow stitching is that there are no rules, no templates, no difficult techniques. So it was more like play than learning a craft. I felt encouraged and confident throughout as I set out my fabrics, moved them round, pinned and stitched. My friends are all clamouring for an opportunity to stitch slooooowly, too.

Interesting ideas. Very expensive considering we had to pay $20 each for a pack with a few more pieces of fabric in it. Also no time for dinner to be at venue by 6. And not even a biscuit to go with teabag.
