Slow-Stitched Scroll

with Lynn Salmon-Easter
Saturday, April 15; 1–4pm CT

Come mend your heart and stitch your way to more calm and ease while you create your own hand-stitched fabric scroll. Learn various techniques for mark-making with needle and thread. Together, we will practice collaging pieces of fabric in simple compositional ways. Using a variety of stitch types, explore line and negative space in different ways to create pattern and visual texture within your scroll. All techniques are simple and require no previous stitching experience. An interest in exploring intuitive ways of creating that are open, expressive, and not based on rigid rules will be helpful.

This workshop will be a blend of simple sewing techniques, hands-on practice, inner reflection, and conversation with others. Come just as you are with a willingness to live, love, and learn from one another.

All skill levels welcome
