Eco Stitch 2 days
An opportunity to gain ideas for ways in which to work with your eco prints.
During the workshop we will be constructing a memory cloth which we will then start to stitch. Hopefully students will have all the necessary ideas and knowledge to complete the project at home.
There will be lots of ideas about design, construction and how to use a variety of different hand stitches to enhance the beauty of your prints. Please note this is a hand stitching workshop no prior experience is needed but there is plenty there for the more experienced stitcher
