Lines & Edges: 10am - 12.30pm

The first workshop will explore how we look at lines & edges in fabric and stitch. We will make an experimental piece in natural fibres in natural shades, which can then be either left as they are or dyed in various ways to enhance the edges & lines we have created. 

Embroidery Workshop: 1 - 3.30pm

In the second workshop, attendees will create a piece of embroidery inspired by the textiles collection at the Shipley. This workshop will use vintage fabrics and traditional hand sewing techniques.
