About the event
Embroidery had been a huge part of human experience for centuries.
Making a mark on cloth has been a way to communicate, record stores, secret languages, embellish clothing, express yourself, ward of evil spirits, repurpose and revamp clothing, cultural significance and relax the mind.
In this day in age embroidery is becoming a dieing craft. I'd like to share this craft with more people to keep this practice alive because it is so beneficial for our minds and souls.
Once you learn basic stitches you can start stitching and trust me once you feel how satisfying it is to embellish cloth you won't want to put the needle down haha.
In this workshop I'll be teaching the 'SLOW STITCH' style of embroidery which is a great style for people to learn who are beginning their journey in needlework, for people who don't want to follow patterns or be intricate and precise and for people who need a craft to help unwind their mind at the end of the day.
Slow Stitching is simply stitching whatever comes to your mind it whichever random way. No pattern is needed which is why this style really allows yourind to pour out and meditate on repetitive stitches.
Overtime as you build up your slow stitch practice you will create a beautiful textile piece that becomes a story of emotions and moments in time.
In the workshop I will teach some basic stitches and foundational tips to get you started with your slow stitching.
You will receive a beginners kit to take home.
We will begin stitching a cotton tote bag which you can continue your slow stitch practice on at home.
It's very satisfying being able to embellish an item that you get to use which is why I chose the tote bag for this workshop.
Come learn this therapeutic and very addictive craft 🪡😊✨
