Working with thread and stitch to create a ‘soft’ drawing, this two-day workshop will focus on basic hand stitching and experimental embroidery techniques combined with simple design and compositional exercises.
Using cloth instead of paper, we will test out patterns and shapes, textures and layers with different hand-stitch applications. We will experiment and combine these techniques and discover ways to use thread for mark making.
Take some time out to learn a new skill, reconnect with your practice through experimentation or begin a new project. Michele’s workshops have limited numbers, as she allows plenty of opportunity for individual attention and ongoing conversations over the two days.
Please note that this workshop is suitable for all levels, beginners and experienced alike. The workshop processes are open and experimental, with a focus on looseness and imperfections through the hand-made, rather than precision and refinement.
