Maday's Memory Of Stitches: Revisiting Old Cloth



My belief is that every hand-stitch is imbued with memory and that paying tribute to the materials that we use is an important part of the creative process.
This hand-stitching workshop puts sustainability at the forefront; by utilizing vintage materials we create and reinforce our connection to the past and an opportunity to honor how cotton comes into existence, from seed to cloth. The texture created by applying hand-stitching becomes the superstar of sustainable, mindful practice. Seeing the work that emerges from non-commercial, non-decorative fabrics, invites us to explore what beauty can be and how it is perceived. I hope you join me in this journey as we explore and rejoice in mindful stitching together.

Instructor Bio:
My studio is the lab where I learn, adapt and create; the place where new ideas emerge and balance is restored with each accomplishment and failure. I'm naturally curious about the creative process and employing new tools & techniques in order to grow as an artist and teacher.
In all workshops I encourage sustainability as a way to build confidence and community, with a back-to-basics approach and consciousness about resource use/waste.
I focus on the perfectly imperfect aspects of discovery, experimentation and most importantly, Living a satisfying life through creativity.
