A celebration of stitch!
Using, time worn textiles learn to hand stitch and embellished a needle case. Emphasis will be placed on the layering of time worn fabrics, laces and haberdashery for an interesting textural base. We will then explore hand embroidery and appliqué for more surface texture and colour.
To make the piece more personal, bring along your own imagery, textiles, fabrics, haberdashery etc.
