Exploring the Elements Through Stitch
A Workshop presented by Anne Williams
Through the quiet, reflective rhythm of hand stitching using the medium of cloth and thread, this workshop explores the elements that form and support us; earth, water, air and fire.
Using a needle with an open eye and a sharp point is like tracing a line of thought that leaves a trail as ideas unfold. In and out, above and below, the slow, rhythmical action of hand stitching allows even the simplest of stitches to become an expressive tool.
