Fragments and Thread is a two day workshop in experimental textiles and 'slow stitching'. Using simple hand stitched and recycled fabrics, artist Michele Elliot will guide you through a series of exercises incorporating basic drawing, collage and composition along with the Bengali technique of kantha to produce a series of small fabric works and samples (kantha - a straight running stitch - is a traditional technique used for embroidery and quilting).
Take some time out to learn a new skill, reconnect with your practice through experimentation or begin a new project. Numbers are limited to allow plenty of opportunity for individual attention and needs, as well as ongoing conversations over the two days. This workshop provides a quiet space for making and exchanging ideas.
Please note this workshops is suitable for all levels, beginners and experienced alike. The workshop processes are open and experimental.
A materials list will be provided.
