Slow Stitching is not a complicated process relying on fancy, perfectly executed stitches and fastidious neatness, but rather, an embrace of the timeworn nature of our materials, and the individuality of our stitching methods. Simplicity and care are the keys.
In this workshop we blend the calm and gentleness of slow stitching with the tranquil floral motifs found in traditional Japanese textile arts.
You will learn how to incorporate these traditional Japanese floral motifs into your stitching projects using layered fabrics and stitches such as couching and chain stitch, along with ancient Japanese stitching methods such as boro and sashiko.
This class is suitable for all levels of experience.
This class will be part of our 2020 Summer School program. It is a 1 day class and will be held on Thursday, 23rd January from 10am to 3:30pm.
