Hand Stitch Weekend 2019 2020

This two-day hand-stitch course will explore a variety of ‘slow’ textile techniques using traditional skills as inspiration. Old quilt samples, Japanese Boro pieces and hand mended scraps are among the textile treasures we will be exploring. We will use plain sewing, patchwork techniques and a palette of thread and fabric repurposed and naturally dyed. There will be opportunities to explore the wellbeing benefits that can be gained from slow textile processes and a daily textile practice. This course will encourage a reflective way of working and will lead to a resonant, personal piece of work.
