Workshops in Western Australia:

Fragments and thread

Leederville: Sat 10th and Sun 11th June 

Fremantle: Sat 17th and Sun 18th June

 

Fragments and Thread is a two-day workshop in experimental textiles and ‘slow stitching’. Using simple hand-stitch and recycled fabrics, I will guide you through a series of exercises incorporating basic drawing and composition along with the Bengali technique of kantha to produce a series of small fabric works and samples (kantha – a straight running stitch - is a traditional technique used for embroidery and quilting).

 

Take some time out to learn a new skill, reconnect with your practice through experimentation or begin a new project. Numbers are limited to allow plenty of time for individual needs and personalised attention, as well as ongoing conversations over the two days.

 

These workshops provides a quiet space for making work and exchanging ideas.

 


My own artworks often take the form of large-scale drawings and installations. Comprised of individual components, threads, stitches, pins etc, they can take many hours or sometimes weeks and months to complete. However, the ideas for projects emerge from an engagement with material research on a small scale in her studio, with fragments and samples. This is integral to my practice and informs my approach to the workshops.



Please note that this workshop is suitable for all levels, beginners and experienced alike.

I'm really pleased to be running this lovely afternoon slow stitch sampler so close to home. It is part of Wild Rumpus' fantastic Skill Sharing program. A great way to get a feel for this simple stitch technique.
