Dictionary of Stitches with Richard McVetis

With Richard McVetis


We are very excited to be able to bring you this workshop via ZOOM by Artist Richard McVetis.  Richard uses a variety of media including drawing, installation and textiles to explore our perception of space and time. 

The workshops will be taking place:

Sunday July 19th from 2:30 to 5pm UK time (on Zoom) and is not as long as the normal workshop and therefore is priced at £37.50

October 3rd 2-6pm ( at the shop) TBD

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 online 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. 

The workshop will take place on the ZOOM site.  We hope people in Europe and the States will be able to join in as well!

Well before the workshop we will be emailing you very clear information on how to log onto ZOOM and the workshop (it really is very easy!) as well as emailing you PDF's of how to do this and class information.

If you would like to take part in this workshop (the maximum number of students is 11 so you will still receive a lot of attention from Richard) please make sure we have the exact email address that you would like us to use to be invited to join the teaching session.
