Scientists warn the rate of extinction of species is rapidly increasing due to the changing climate and habitat loss. As artists of faith we are deeply concerned about the state of the planet. Through a range of art forms, we will express hope and commitment to act as wise stewards of Creation.
Our first opportunity will be to engage in Slow Stitching. Textile artist and business owner Lisa Mattock will guide us in simple, repetitive stitches that draw inspiration from the Japanese boro technique. Working with a mixture of repurposed, recycled, and vintage textiles, participants may choose to make bags, cushion covers or other items.
All materials as well as lunch and morning tea are provided. The workshop fee, which includes the starter pack, is $95. Great for crafters, artists, op shop volunteers and climate activists.
