Stitch your own Toadstool : A relaxing afternoon of making
Level: Beginners to advanced
Class size: 4
Course length: 2 and a half hours
Materials, equipment and tuition are included.
A fun afternoon composing a toadstool (or something else) using odds and ends of fabric and fibres and embellished with hand and/or machine stitch
This is a fun, relaxing, experimental session.
You can work to our template, or create one of your own. Using predominantly recycled and waste fabrics and whatever stitch: machine or hand; seems best for your piece you will construct the main shape. We have a selection of wooded reels to use as stems, but you could use something else. Its all about playing and experimenting.
This relaxing session is for beginners or those who want to free up their technique. Learn or develop simple stitches and textile techniques to make something unique to you. If you have already been to the hand and machine stitching workshops you may want to extend what you tried out in them.
All materials and threads will be provided. There will be an opportunity to try out different fabrics and fibres, with an emphasis on re-using and adapting scraps and other bits and bobs.
This workshop is part of Sam’s Harrow Open Studio. Her artwork will be around for you to use as inspiration and ideas. It will take place in the Stitch Club Studio in Central Pinner. This Aladdin’s cave is full of inspirational textile bits and bobs. It has been adapted to our new way of being with a lovely outdoor working space where you can relax and forget about the world outside.
You will leave with new ideas and the confidence to create your next embroidery independently.
