woolly tattoo specimens with Tif Fussell (dottie angel)
We're thrilled and very honoured to welcome Tif Fussell to Loop!
WHEN BOOKING A CLASS ONLINE, OTHER THAN BY CALLING THE SHOP, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PUT YOUR PHONE NUMBER AND EMAIL IN THE 'NOTES' PART OF THE ORDER. MANY THANKS.
Experience level: experience in handling a needle and thread would be grand.
In the first half of this class Tif will teach a few simple embroidery stitches, worked upon a knitted fabric sampler using yarn, after which we will take our newly found knowledge and create a woolly tattoo specimen using a medley of beautiful, colorful yarns and our imagination.
This slow stitched patch can then be framed or attached to a bag or sweater upon your return home.
The techniques learned can also be applied to any of your knits.
You are most welcome to bring along any yarns, perhaps odds and ends from finished projects, to use on your piece. Fingering and DK weight in rustic and superwash make for a nice contrast and there will be plenty of yarns for us to be inspired by at Loop.
If you have a project such as a hat, sweater or shawl you are wishing to bling out with a bit of a tattoo be sure to bring it along and Tif would be happy to hatch a stitching plan with you, advising on yarns and placement towards the end of the day!
Workshop is from 11am-4pm with a break for lunch.
Lunch is not included but there will be light refreshments throughout the day.
“Taking time to slow down our stitches in turn slows down our mind and our body. If we allow it, each stitch deliberately placed side by side to create an outward extension of our inner creative soul, can truly become not only healing but also sacred in a world so often filled with external noise, fears and sadness.” – Tif
Tif Fussell spent many moons and numerous years bringing up her clan in a mossy shed surrounded by critters and pine trees just outside of Seattle, Washington. On any given day she could be found blogging, crafting or writing books under the name of dottie angel.
These days Tif is a little wiser and a little older. With children scattered around the globe she rekindled her love for embroidery, using rustic and hand dyed yarns to create ‘woolly tattoos’.
When Tif isn’t plotting her next slow stitch, she can be found with her nose in a book, most likely on Buddhism or finding her chi through Qigong or collaborating with her clan under the name curious.and.coe
So in a nutshell, Tif is a woolly tattoo artist, a crafty dabbler of sorts, a critter liker, a would-be, could-be Buddhist and definitely a little vintage most days.
