Join us at Make:Shed for our Stitching Taster Session – the first of three workshops, to begin a collaborative stitched art work which we’ll work on over the coming weeks.

In this first session we’ll be concentrating on learning some simple textiles techniques. You’ll be guided through Applique, Embroidery and Fabric Painting processes in preparation for creating your own unique textile design in the next session.

No previous experience necessary, all tools and materials will be provided. Whether you’re a complete beginner or looking to brush up on your skills, this session is perfect for all levels.

This workshop is the first of three in our Community Art Creation series –you’ll get the most from it if you come along to all 3 sessions.
