Embroidery Explorers!
Learning contemporary approaches to traditional stitch techniques, generating individual mixed media, embroidered outcomes, with an emphasis to develop your own hand embroidery style.
“Embroidery is a method to mark our existence. Leaving evidence of our presence in stitches previously held by our touch” (Hunter, Clare; 2019).
The workshop will be broken down into “making a mark” and “creating a stamp”.

Workshop 1: “making a mark”
Date: May 24th, 2023. 17:00 – 19:00 BST
The first workshop; “making a mark” , will explore letting the imagination run free, having no set rules, just experimenting differently with a variety of materials in a contemporary way.
It will act as a foundation for the development of contemporary pieces that carry your unique handwriting style.
Workshop 2 – “creating a stamp”
Date: June 21st, 2023. 17:00 – 19:00 BST
