Create fascinating textures and patterns, work a stitch in different threads changing its scale and spacing, work freely, and combine stitches to mark make and draw. This is an experimental approach to stitch and draws on the imagination of each participant. Artist will be on hand to guide and inspire you through the workshop drawing on his ten years of stitching experience. This is also a chance to unwind, slow down and experience the calming benefits of this craft process.
