Slow Stitching with Lisa Mattock

We are absolutely delighted to once again have textile artist Lisa Mattock teach her slow stitching class with us. 

This is a one day class and Lisa will be teaching a different project on each day of her two days with us.

 

Day 1 - Saturday June 22nd - Japanese Floral Motifs


                     

 

Wabi-sabi is the Japanese ethos that focuses on finding beauty within imperfection.

Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy,

austerity, modesty, and an appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.

This philosophy works in harmony with the Forage philosophy and the concept of Slow Stitching,

which centres around the “make do and mend” and “waste
not, want not” ethos of yesteryear

In this workshop you will blend the calm and gentleness of slow stitching with the

tranquil floral motifs found in traditional Japanese textile arts.

Lisa will show you how to incorporate traditional Japanese floral motifs into your stitching projects

using layered fabrics and stitches such as couching and chain stitch.

 

 

Day 2 - Sunday June 23rd - The Woodland Series

 

                                                             

 


There is such joy the be found when you stumble upon the first snowdrops and bluebells of the season.

The squelching of your gum boots in mud as you forage for wild berries, plump and bursting with colour.

Come, notice the details such as acorns on oak trees in the early morning mist. Then stay quiet, and still, for there are glimpses of shy hedgehogs or deer to be found.

There are nine panels in the Woodland quilt, each themed with a different woodland motif.

In the Woodland Workshop you will work on the Mushroom Panel,

but Lisa will also share with you the rest of the story so you can see how it will all

come together if you choose to make the full quilt.

 

Choose to do one day or both and spend some wonderful time slow stitching, eating, chatting and having fun in our lovely light filled classroom.

Time: 10:00am to 4:00pm

Miss Marple's Mystery Quilt

 


Do you love a good mystery?

Join  Robyn Falloon and make Miss Marple's Mystery Quilt.


"If you like to take things bit by bit and love an adventure, this is a great way to join
in some fun in a relaxed, creative way!

Six classes over the year starting 3rd February 2019 (every two months).


This Mystery Quilt can be as scrappy as you like and you can have fun fossicking in
your fabric collection and trying unlikely fabric combinations. OR you may decide to
have a 'theme thing' happening with Kaffe Fassett's, monotones or moderns, or
whatever takes your fancy.


The finished quilt is 75" x 75" but you can make is bigger if you want to, or smaller if
you run out of steam. Whatever you decide will look fabulous!
At each class, you will be given a set task (blocks) which can ideally be completed
before the next session - but no-one is going to be checking up on you!!!
The blocks are suitable for beginners through to advanced and are predominantly
pieced, with some appliqué designs. I can provide you with all the tips to make it
easy and FUN.


AND I will be working away with you so I hope I can keep up!!"


Come along and see if you can solve the mystery………… Robyn
