The Sewing Shed and Stroud Intenational Textiles Festival.
As part of Stroud International Textiles Festival The Sewing Shed offers 'All Stitched Up', a workshop to explore the use of the machine. Experimental stitch and techniques of freehand embroidery, hand stitch and multi media will be used to create textures and form. This is an opportunity to encourage and explore.
Trough simple and quick drawing techniques we will move on to create our imagery. This will lead on to hands-on techniques such as collage, layering, reversed appliqué, machine embroidery, etc. to get you inspired.
When: Saturday 23rd May
Where: at the Sewing Shed, Uplands, Stroud.
Time : 10 am - 3.30 pm.
