A textile creation session using threads and embroidery to stitch together stories.
Join us for this workshop where you will use basic stitching and embroidery techniques while engaging in playful group activities. We will create something inspired by the role of thread as a metaphor for infinite connections. At the end of the session, you will take a small personal textile art ready to hang.
This is an open door class. Visitors to the gallery will be able to view and interact with participants.
No previous experience necessary. All levels and ages are welcome.
Materials will be supplied. Participants are welcome to bring personal pieces of textiles and threads they would like to work on.
