Dictionary of Stitches with Richard McVetis


With Richard McVetis

Workshops take place in our London shop from 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm.


Richard uses a variety of media including drawing, installation, and textiles to explore our perception of space and time. 

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.
 

In this workshop participants will explore a combination of traditional hand embroidery techniques, how you do it, and why you do it. We will explore the slowness and rhythms of hand stitching; the versatility and strengths of embroidery for drawing and mark-making; and the pleasure in having time to make.
Create textures and patterns, work a stitch in different threads changing its scale and spacing, work freely, and combine stitches to mark make and draw. Practical help will be given by demonstrating the many ways in which this can be achieved using the most simple of hand embroidery techniques, no knowledge of particular and precise embroidery techniques are needed.
 
We will explore the following stitches: straight / running / couching / whipped + laced
 
You will need:
Fabric - cotton, linen or wool, or anything you might you want to stitch on (nothing too tightly woven) 
A range of threads 
Embroidery/ sewing needles 
Scissors 
An embroidery hoop

100% deposit is required at registration.
