Try your hand at freestyle embroidery to stitch your creative mark on a recycled denim bunting.
On the day, just bring yourself and an idea of what you might like to say on your bunting flag. Experienced textile artist & tutor, Karen will show you some for inspiration and guide you in embroidery according to your ability and aspirations for you to create your own beautiful personalised flag to include in the festival display. Your flag can be returned to you afterwards if you would like to keep it.
Even before the day of the workshop, you can get started if you want to, in these ways:
1. Donate clean but tatty old jeans or scraps of pretty cotton/linen for the tutor to recycle – deliver to the madeinroath space at 1a Inverness Place or to the tutor by arrangement.
2. If you know how to sew/embroider and would like to get started on sewing a flag or two, please contact the tutor for the denim template, or to collect some denim flags. Please return these before 1 October so they can be included in the festival-long window display.
