About this event

All materials will be provided

Booking is required and we ask for a small donation at booking towards the cost of materials - max. 10 participants.

We have all experienced the soothing effects of a walk in nature. Research shows that we experience a marked enhancement in our emotional well-being, when we take a stroll in which we intentionally shift your attention outward instead of inward. (UC Berkeley, Sep 2020). Stitching produces a similar meditative state by focusing on the journey of the needle and thread on cloth.

In this workshop, textile artist Ekta Kaul invites you to tune into nature and explore mapping foliage on a savoured walk through stitch. Before the workshop, she requests you to forage for foliage or alternatively take photographs on your favourite walk. Please bring at least 1 example or 1 images of foliage to class e.g. a leaf, a flower, an acorn or a twig, paying close attention to what you feel drawn to for its pleasing form, colour or texture. Using these examples as inspiration, we will map the connection between stitch, nature and well-being.

For inspiration, bring 1 or more examples or images of foliage you have gathered on a recent walk. (e.g. a leaf, a flower, an acorn or a twig that caught your attention).

Ekta Kaul is an award-winning textile artist known for her embroidered maps. This workshop organised as part of our Surrey Artist of the Year season, and it is supported by Patricia Baines Trust. It is also part of our Craft Month celebrations for our World Craft Town.
