Contemporary Stitch Workshop

The contemporary Stitch Workshop met last weekend for the first time this year. We have a new theme that will extend across the next two years – ‘Land Marks’.

We had planned to go out to the beach to collect inspiration to work on but the weather was wet and cold so we remained in the hall where the group considered three possible pathways through the new theme:

looking at the marks and symbols used to describe features on maps,

analysing an Ordnance survey map and adding imagery to it perhaps to tell a story,

and using the networks found on maps.

They were asked to bring maps to work with and to cut up and some very interesting approaches began to emerge.

Ros and I were delighted with the response and engagement with this new theme and look forward to seeing the developments in due course.

Work is being completed for our forthcoming exhibition entitled ‘Heads and Tales” at Birdwood House, Totnes on July 20th-27th.ImageImageImage
