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 introductory class, aimed at beginners, Lisa teaches the foundations of each stitch and the techniques involved in creating beautiful pieces from treasured finds. She recommends you do this workshop before any of her "themed" ones.
Have a rummage through those gorgeous old linens that grandma gave you (or the local op shop!), bring them along and learn the art of repurposing them in a contemporary, unique way. Starter Packs will also be available for purchase.
No previous stitching experience is necessary, but is of course welcome.
This class will be part of our 2020 Summer School program. It is a 1 day class and will be held on Wednesday, 22nd January from 10am to 3:30pm. Cost of the class is $135 for a one-day option, or $260 if you are able to join us for both of Lisa's classes. You will receive a copy of Lisa's class notes and her lovely goodie bag.
