Say Something with Stitch 1 day workshop – hand stitch – an introduction to storytelling

In this workshop Sue will introduce you to working with multiple images which relate to tell a story.
During the workshop you will start to make a mini textile approx 20 x 20 cms in which the focus is a subject of your choice. This could be a simple image of face, figure or animal but equally could be a flower, plant or object. It’s up to you.
Using hand stitch, appliqué techniques and positive limitations Sue will guide you through quick & easy ways to get started and share the straightforward processes she uses herself to make compositions from multiple images.
There’s no need to be worried about your drawing ability just bring a selection of simple images as inspiration. These can be of anything you like to tell your story.
This is a hand stitch workshop and is suitable for all abilities. By the end of the workshop participants will have the necessary skills to develop their own narrative work further and a piece of work started to develop further at home.
The aim of the workshop is to gain the confidence to use your own ideas to tell a story and enjoy doing it.
