Guest tutors working with InStitches
Treat yourself to some creative fun this year with a special workshop from InStitches working in conjunction with some of the country's most creative artists - textile and otherwise. Recently we have welcomed mixed media textile artists Debbie Lyddon, Christine Chester and Alice Fox, artist-maker Richard McVetis, embroiderer Linda Miller, natural dyer Caroline Bell and book binder Nesta Davies.
This is a great opportunity to try something a little bit different to spark your creativity and feed into your own work - or just for a change. If you're looking for a new approach to your work, wonder what mixed media is all about or have always fancied having a try at something new, here's your chance!
And we'll supply nearly everything you need, so you won't need to source a load of new stuff (unless you want to . . .) and, of course, coffee and biscuits, a light lunch and tea and cakes to make the perfect day out. Bring a friend. Bring two . . .
The workshops take place in our new studio, a spacious modern building on the borders of Eversley and Wokingham, which has plenty of parking on site with level access to the building. If you don't live within travelling distance but would still like a treat, why not come and stay locally? Click here for more details of where to stay.
