Collaborative Workshops

Stitch Club runs workshops with community groups, local schools, borough councils, and galleries including the Discovery Children’s Centre, Stratford and The Dulwich Picture Gallery as well as HMP Send.

Each workshop is tailored to the requirements of the event and the skill level of the participants. Drawing from our experience of working with children and adults in a creative and engaging way combined with our knowledge of drawing, painting, sewing and constructing with mixed media we develop an engaging session or sessions with you to meet individual specifications and abilities.
