S&E Week 6

Join Stitched Up for a drop-in workshop using patching and embroidery techniques and taking inspiration from Japanese Sashiko stitching, we’ll help you to create visible mends that are unique and fabulous.

This is a hand stitch workshop. You will learn a variety of different embroidery stitches and weaving techniques to embellish a mesh material base and securely sew up the pocket pouch.

Alongside our workshop we will be discussing ideas for reducing textile and clothing waste through community-level reuse, upcycling solutions or campaign groups. With information about our opportunities at Stitched Up and how to get involved.
