The term Slow Stitching is a relatively new term - but its practice is ancient

Hand stitching has been used in many cultures such as the Japanese Boro, Indian Kantha, hand stitched quilts, making and mending clothing and textiles. We are now connecting with these old traditions to create beautiful works.

Explore this slow stitching process where we reuse fabrics and clothes. We will explore texture, stitch and colour to create new old-look textile pieces, which could be, an art piece, a stitch journal, a bag or even an item of clothing.

Ruth trained as a clothing designer in the UK, working with textiles and fashion warehouses. When she came to Australia she graduated from Box Hill TAFE with a Visual Arts Diploma and then completed a Bachelor of Adult Learning and Development at Monash University.

She has taught art and crafts at a tertiary level and also through community education programs, some in very remote areas. She strongly believes in the need to facilitate opportunities for creative workshops in rural and regional communities. She knows first hand that people in these areas often don't often get the chance to participate in events like these, and being able to explore creativity in a supportive, safe space is an essential part of life.

Her interest in teaching, craft and supporting regional areas were the perfect foundation for what is now this wonderful crafty community. And now briningg online workshops means everyone can access what she teaches.
