NEW A Virtual Workshop
Slow Stitching, a moving mediation with our hands.
This 3 hour Slow Stitching workshop will be held virtually through ZOOM on Friday May 8th 10-1pm
Our focus will be on a mindful and more contemplative way of spending time stitching, the Slow Stitch movement embraces a more environmental and sustainable method of using what you already have rather than buying more. Ideal for the times we find ourselves in.
I see the practice as a moving meditation combining our hands and mind, the rhythm of our needles creates a space of calm, slows our breathing and grounds us in the moment.
During the three hours we will spend together I will share some loving exercises for hand care.
We will, where possible recycle and reuse what we have to hand in our homes.
Think about a patchwork or fabric collage base .
I’ll introduce my use of the invisible baste to secure our foundation
Consider possible stitches and celebrate the mighty running stitch & sew intuitively responding to the fabric under our fingers.
All levels and experience are welcome.
Kits are available here which include all the basics you’ll need to get started.
Base fabric, collage fabric scraps from my personal stash (observing the universal law that someone else’s stash is always more exciting than your own!). A selection of threads and a couple of needles appropriate to thread thickness.
All class handouts & details about Zoom will be sent as a PDF once payment has been received.
Numbers for the workshop will be limited to 8 to keep the feeling of a small and intimate gathering as much as possible.
Because we will be stitching in our own homes there is a wonderful benefit to just showing up as we are wearing whatever comfies we might want to wear and having our fabric stash & thread collections close to hand to use.
