Slow Stitching plus complimentary Creative Mending workshop
Become a master of stitch work! Create, recycle and renew your fabric stash and wardrobe using a range of fun techniques.
These two workshops complement each other perfectly.
Slow Stitching is all about creating new works from recycled fabrics and clothing and not necessarily having a plan but with a more meditative approach creating beautiful new stitched items.
Creative mending is about giving an old garment a bit of love so it last longer - however this time you would have a goal in mind repairing a rip, a hole, a hem and be inspired to be creative with it too.
Both workshops have a promo video on the individual workshops.
Ruth has always been a crafter - and one that loves to pass on her love for creating. She 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 Diploma of Visual Arts 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 became the perfect foundation for what is now this wonderful crafty community. And now bringing online workshops means everyone can access what she teaches.
