Lynn Smart will be teaching this class for 6 weeks sharing her creative talent with a canvas work tile and bringing skills learned recently at the Royal School of Needlework. 

This Tile project can be adapted into a coin purse, pencil case or travel bag depending upon the students choice or ability.  It can also be stitched with students own interpretation of stitches or tutors.

Canvas and frame will be available at class and threads will be chosen in class with guidance from the tutor

Later in  the year we will continue exploring Japanese style embroidery techniques like Sashiko and Boro which reference the slow stitching movement which is all about keeping things simple and making practical pieces and learning about darning, remaking and recycling all the while embracing the mindfulness of  simple repetition with needle and thread. We have interesting little projects in mind inspired by clever Japanese artistry.
