Event description

Description


Following on from the introductory workshop in contemporary embroidery, Lille Be stitches and Just Art It bring you a monthly Collective Stitching Café on the last Sunday of April, May and June 2018.

Hand embroidery was traditionally a home-based, female and domestic art form that was decorative and private. However, in the act of using needles to create images, it becomes a powerful mode of self-expression. In bringing the private into the public realm, the domestic becomes political the solitary becomes social; from the solitary stitcher emerges the collective. By playing with the origins of hand embroidery this course hopes to expand our understanding of embroidery while creating a social space of shared creativity.

Join us as we expand our understanding of embroidery and creative practice through needles and thread. •learn a new skill • expand your knowledge of embroidery • experiment with texture and line • support with technique • design your own imagery and translate it through thread •

All levels are welcome – as this is an unstructured event, all levels will be catered for, and suitable guidance will be provided.



Dates: Sunday June 24th

Times: 13 to 4pm

Price: €45 per session - €25 non-refundable deposit is required to ensure your place in this workshop.

*** Remember to bring your hoop and suitable fabric and thread. Contact us at least 48 hours before the day if you need the basic embroidery kit to purchase on the day at extra cost.
