Event description

Description

For this workshop Richard has drawn on his love of stitching, paying attention to time, labour and care to develop a day of stitching.

The workshop will explore a combination of traditional hand embroidery techniques, how and why you do it. We will explore the slowness and rhythms of hand stitching; the versatility and strengths of embroidery for drawing and mark making; and the pleasure in having time to make.

This is an experimental approach to stitch and draws on the imagination of each participant. 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. Practical help will be given by demonstrating the many ways in which this can be achieved using the most simple of hand embroidery techniques. No knowledge of particular and precise embroidery techniques are needed.
