Subversive Needlework: working with artist Danica Maier this workshop will work against the usual printed guide pattern and ‘rules’ of a needlework kit to create a unique stitched work for each individual participant.
Using the kits original printed guide as the starting point you will develop and create new rules for working up your needlework piece. Focusing on one or two elements that will celebrate the original printed guide image as something to be retained while adding, developing, miss matching, or ignoring it with new stitch marks. You will create an entirely original piece using the kits original design as the starting point while making a new work unique to you.
