There is something enchanting about hand-stitching. We are drawn to stitch & can almost feel the vitality of the person who created the sewn marks. The purpose of this workshop is to guide you through lively exercises for making your own work in a spontaneous & fresh manner.
This two day session will be filled with music, doodling, stitching & fun. Christine will present ideas & methods through samples, books, powerpoint presentations & music. Students are encouraged to bring a small sampling (1 to 3) of their own stitched items to share with the group to help each of us gain a sense of community, sharing & mutual respect. This is a nice kick-start session for building a meditative & purposeful style of hand-stitching. Limit: 14.
