Contemporary Needlepoint Tapestry workshop
SUNDAY AUGUST 13TH 2-5PM
By Niki McDonald aka Tapestry Girl
A contemporary needlepoint tapestry workshop where you'll have fun breaking the rules of tradition. After some initial skill building, easily achieve a textile art piece and fall in love with wool because it’s true to colour, clean, portable and primal.
As a group you'll explore the elements of design and you’ll have the opportunity to select and use a stencil to extend your urban inspired painted tapestry canvas. It’s all about choice, evaluations, creative decisions and making. Learn the half cross stitch traditionally used in needlepoint tapestry then seeking layering and texture we will work with the single and double cross stitch which will allow the painted background to be revealed.
This work shop will provide you with the skills and inspiration to access your creativity. Needlepoint tapestry is the perfect combination of art meets craft and you’ll find the rhythmic flow of sewing is restorative, soothing and uplifting.
All equipment is provided;
A painted 5ct tapestry canvas
An embroidery needle
A tapestry tote bag....
No need to bring anything but a desire to learn and have fun!
