This is a course for those who already love, or would like to have the opportunity to try, slow hand-stitching- which can be a totally absorbing, pleasurable and mindful activity. It will start with a refresh and/or introduction to a range of embroidery stitches, and then move on to more complicated or unusual stitches which may include Japanese Sashiko, Indian Kantha, and darning & quilting, as time allows. The emphasis will be on creative experimentation in a friendly and relaxed environment. Returning learners are welcome to re-join, and individual projects and techniques will be adapted to your skills level.
