Tinkering with Textile Art
Posted by Helensburgh Art Hub
With the help of ZOOM you'll be able to stitch-a-long in the comfort and safety of your own home.
Sewing and stitching isn’t always about being precise and perfect. The sewing police won’t be checking in so there are no rules for this workshop - you can use textiles and thread (and even things that aren’t textiles or thread) in any way you like, to create a piece of textile art to take home.
I’ll provide some inspiration, some tips to get you started and to guide you with some of the stitches and techniques I use.
Absolutely no sewing skills necessary!
What you'll need to craft along. . .
threads - embroidery & sewing
beads, buttons, twigs, leaves, beach finds - anything you might like to work with
a cup of tea and a biscuit (I'll be having Lapsang Souchong and a Jammy Dodger!)
Optional extra. . .
If you are local (Helensburgh or Cardross) we can provide a kit with some useful things to complete this project. It will include felt and a selection of scrap materials.
Kits are £5.00 and will be delivered to your doorstep ahead of the workshop. Send us a pm via facebook with your address details by the Wednesday before the workshop date. Payment is by bank transfer.
Taking this class is Sharon from Sew Silly Lily, a graduate of Glasgow School or Art with a lifelong passion for textiles, craft and design.
