About the event
One of three workshops with Nicola across Thread Republic’s residency in Fair Trader, exploring aspects of Textile Art with Nicola Twynham. Using found objects from everyday life we will explore couching and hand stitch techniques to combine objects with fabric in this experimental and playful session. We will create samplers for you to take away and discuss how you could build on these techniques. You will finish feeling inspired to integrate objects with your stitching practice moving forwards.
Skill Level: no embroidery experience needed.
