Meditative Stitching - textile book

Meditative Stitching - textile book

The Artist’s Studio, located in the garden, is my sanctuary away from the house and the hustle and bustle of everyday life where I can immerse myself in making art. I find that the slow, meditative, act of stitching provides time to reflect and I invite you to join me for a meditative stitching workshop.
Each participant will be given a meditative stitching kit which includes a fabric book, fabric patches, threads, vintage buttons and needle with pins and threader. During this workshop we will start stitching into the books – the kit is for you to take away and enjoy many hours of meditative stitching.

I aim for my workshops to be as sustainable as possible. To this end, I source 'reclaimed' threads and materials for participants' use where ever possible.

Each workshop is for a maximum of 4 participants (plus me).

2pm – 4pm (2 hours). £30. Booking essential.

No experience necessary.

About me:
After attending Helena Romanes School in Great Dunmow, I continued studies at Braintree College intending to become a jewellery designer. Along the way that changed and I found a love of textiles. Following my degree in Constructed Textiles at Middlesex University I worked in Hong Kong as a knitwear and print designer. Upon return to England I worked in textiles in London before spending 18 years in Australia variously working in graphics, advertising, radio and managing an art space in addition to my studio practice and exhibiting work throughout Australia. I started my PhD in Creative Arts at James Cook University (Queensland) in 2012. I returned to England in 2015, completed my PhD in 2018, and continue to work as a mixed media and textile artist based in Bishop’s Stortford.
