Slow Stitching notebook cover by artist Sarah Dodds

Join us for a creative workshop led by textile artist Sarah Dodds of Interface Arts.

The slow-stitch movement combines relaxation with creative movements. The main element of slow stitch is just that, carefully, repetitively putting stitches into fabric.

Led by artist Sarah Dodds, this session will introduce simple collage techniques using scraps of fabric and simple stitches such as running stitch and seed stitch to create a notebook cover.



All materials provided. No experience necessary.



£13 per person. Suitable for over 16s only.
