Slow Stitch on Linen

Featured Image


About the event

Slow stitch is all about slowing down, being aware of the world around you, and maybe connecting with your past.

In this workshop, tutor Linda O’Kane introduces you to the concept of a stitch journal, giving guidance on how to develop a daily stitching practice. Taking a little time out of your day, say 10-20 minutes, you can sit and calmly stitch a small area in your stitch journal.

Using vintage linen and embroidery threads you sew a little each day with stitches that are easy to do. You finish with a tactile and beautiful piece of embroidery that is personal to you. This introduction will get you started and then as a way to relax or unwind your thoughts and feelings can be translated into stitch.

No experience of sewing is necessary. Materials will be provided but please bring along small scissors.
