Event description

In this day workshop, after an inspirational walk through David Parr House, we explore the potential of stitching as a method of mark-making, using stitch, process, and materials to express yourself. We will explore the slowness and rhythms of hand stitching, the versatility, and strengths of embroidery for drawing and mark-making, and the pleasure of having time to make.

Create textures and patterns, work a stitch in different threads changing its scale and spacing, work freely, and combine stitches to mark, make and draw. Richard will help by demonstrating how this can be achieved using the simplest hand embroidery techniques.

This workshop is for all levels of hand embroiderers.

Good ideas need well and nourished minds; this workshop inspires moments of mindfulness and conditions for creativity, to pause, think, and re-energise.
