About this event


		Meditative Stitching on Felt Workshop with Melanie Siegel (Wednesday) image

In this introduction to the world of stitch, participants will learn the applications of needle and thread not only as an art form but also as an important life skill. To meditate on stitching in order to focus thought and contemplation is one of the goals of this workshop.

Textile art is easily transported, and materials are not expensive. It is possible to create something useful and practical, or simply for the joy of creating. Stitching has this magical way of keeping us in the moment, allowing the artist an opportunity for quiet contemplation. Moments of peace and calm in the midst of all that is going on around us is crucial for striking a balance in life. By hand stitching we are connecting our hands and hearts with a purpose. Designing in such a manner, one can slip into a meditative state, not worrying about patterns or making a mistake, but simply carrying the thread forward.

Using simple tools, a large sewing needle and mixed colourful embroidery threads, participants will create shapes, line and design imagery on a pre-felted handmade textile. All materials will be provided.
