The Stitch Line as a Brush Stroke

Our world moves very fast.  This retreat-like workshop focuses on slowing down and relishing in process rather than product.  Supplies needed are minimal and no machine is necessary.  So grab a bag of fabric scraps and your favorite hand sewing tools, and jump on board.  This is not a technique workshop where you learn how to hand stitch.  The focus is on using the stitch line as mark making on cloth.  The stitch marks are the brush strokes that make the composition complete.  The Gee’s Bend Quilters, along with Boro and Kantha stitching practices will be examined.  Students will explore personal mark making preferences, with the power of parallel play in groups.
