About the event

Come along to the Island Arts Centre and join Heather Richardson in this practical workshop where you will create your own stitched ‘pocket amulet’ – the perfect place to secure little treasures and keepsakes.

Sewing together can be a great way to share thoughts, influences and styles as well as stitches. Using stitch is a lovely way to tell a story, you can make your piece truly unique by incorporating your own ideas and perhaps memories.

Please bring scissors and sewing needles. All other materials will be provided.
