Slow Stitch Stories Workshop for Adults

About the Event

Embark on a creative journey with artist Catherine Summers in our captivating Slow Stitch Workshop. Immerse yourself in the art of hand stitching at a leisurely and contemplative pace, where mindfulness, creativity, and the meditative nature of stitching take center stage.

Discover the fundamentals of slow stitching, including basic techniques like the running stitch, or delve into the world of Boro stitching for fabric mending and embellishment. Catherine will expertly guide you through the process of crafting fabric collages using these unhurried techniques, encouraging you to incorporate scraps, repurpose old clothes, and experiment with various materials to produce one-of-a-kind textile art.

Alternatively, explore an introduction to embroidery stitches, perfect for enhancing your slow stitching projects. Participants can experiment with a variety of embroidery techniques, adding intricate details to their work, mending damaged or worn items, and infusing creativity into the process.

Engage in a supportive sharing circle during the workshop, where you can exchange experiences, showcase your creations, and even bring personal stories and emotions into your stitching, transforming it into a deeply meaningful and reflective experience.

Allow the workshop to be a space for self-discovery as you experiment with different stitches and techniques, discovering your unique style. Immerse yourself in the meditative and therapeutic aspects of slow stitching, and leave with not only a beautiful creation but also a renewed sense of creativity and inner calm.

About the Artist - Catherine Summers

Catherine Summers, a skilled artist hailing from the rugged Flinders Rangers, embarked on her creative journey early in life. Growing up in an environment that fostered artistic expression, she navigated high school with art lessons conducted through correspondence, and her cherished art supplies arrived neatly packaged in a box, a keepsake she still treasures.

Upon settling in Cleve, Catherine immersed herself in the world of quilting, dedicating 25 years to the Quilters group. Over time, her artistic evolution led her from traditional quilting to the realm of creative textile art, seamlessly merging into textiles and mixed media. For Catherine, creating art is not just a passion but a lifeline; she is addicted to the processes of drawing, stitching, painting, and sewing.

Harnessing her accumulated skills, Catherine transforms her collection of fabrics and papers into captivating small artworks and journals. Recently making a home in the picturesque Barossa Valley, Catherine has discovered new opportunities to showcase her art. In pursuit of her artistic aspirations, she has initiated a small creative business known as Fibre Bird Studio, where she continues to share her unique vision with the world.
