Event description
This workshop explores a combination of traditional hand embroidery techniques, how to create different stitches and when to use them.

About this Event

The course leader Richard McVetis has an experimental approach to stitch and draws on the imagination of each participant to create different textures and patterns. Practical help is given to demonstrate the many ways in which different effects can be achieved using simple hand embroidery techniques. No knowledge of embroidery techniques is needed.

Objectives:

-To develop traditional hand embroidery skills

-To translate your own your thoughts and inspirations into stitch

-To develop an understanding of embroidery as a contemporary art medium

Materials are provided but participants can bring along anything they would like to embroider with or on.

Richard McVetis is an artist working in a range of media, including drawing, installation, and textiles, to explore our perception of space and time. He is a finalist of the 2018 Loewe Craft Prize and his artwork has been celebrated in galleries, art fairs, and museums across the world including Iceland, Ukraine, Pakistan, South Korea, UAE, and the USA.
