Identity and Object (contemporary hand stitching) with Alison Moger | ***** Workshop | Mission Gallery | Saturday, 28. July 2018

11am – 4pm | £25 (Discount for Friends of Mission Gallery) | Suitable for ages 16+
We are all drawn to objects within our lives, and the wearable object often is a response to identity and how we want others to identify us. For this workshop we will be creating a small wearable piece of work to embellish a garment.
Please bring along if possible:
1.     Embroidery hoop size of your choice this could be used as a permanent frame if desired.
2.     Embroidery threads of your colour choice I will also have thread available.
3.     Fabrics that are personal to you and have a sentimental value that are suitable for hand embroidery (linen, cotton, close knit wool old blankets often work well) thick fabric with a very tight weave is not normally suitable as the embroidery needle needs the glide through the fabric with ease. I will have some lovely vintage fabric.
4.     Embroidery needles a pack of mixed sizes if possible but I will also have a selection on hand, I will also bring along my sewing machine so that some experimental free-stitch can be explored.
5.     Vintage buttons, old buckles, clasps, beads and any other quirky items of your choice always work well.
