Take a few minutes to sit with us and make your mark in stitch on our communal blanket. Choose some thread and start stitching – we will help you if you need it.
What do you think of when you see an old blanket like this? Does it: connect you to the past; family; snuggling up on sleepovers at Grandma’s house? Share your memories and stories with us.
This is a free activity – eventually this blanket will be used for some community purpose – do you have any ideas?
Explore the mediative pleasure of stitch and be guided through the process of creating imaginative freeform embroidery using felt, thread and creative colour play.
Class & Kit cost $25
Be lead through a process so you stitch more and think less, improve your skills and increase your intuition. Slow down and enjoy the feeling of stitching with wool on wool.
Class & Kit cost $8
