This masterclass workshop will begin with a short tour of her Emotional Repair exhibtion with artist Ruth Singer.
You will then make your own Precious Objects Sampler full of stories and memories with Ruth, inspired by her exhibition. You will use antique scraps to create an embroidered, patchwork background onto which you can add precious objects, tiny treasures and found natural materials. You will learn a range of hand stitch techniques including wrapping and binding as well as hand embroidery, and can include text and image into your sampler to make it personal. Vintage and antique textiles are provided. Do bring your own treasures and personal scraps along too, to incorporate into your sampler.
Please bring your own basic sewing kit (needles, scissors etc).
Cost: £55, including materials. Lunch and refreshments are not included.
