As the title suggests I am revisiting techniques from my past and delivering them as a complete workshop with stitch.
Using linen/flax and silk fibre we will make felted paper grounds, spin thread if you want and integrate into some stitched pieces.
Bring some handmade papers and you can play with these too.
This will be a ‘playful’ workshop combining different neutral surfaces together and sharing my love of hand stitch.
I will encourage you to inlay, darn, reinforce, make fragile ,couch and embed your stitching into your grounds.
Inspiration will be around us…the textures and shapes of Moor Hall.
