Share a Stitch: Participatory Embroidery Workshop with Moody Bright Designs

Wed 11 September 11am-1pm

Embroidery is a process of conveying and capturing stories. Behind every embroidered piece there is a story.
– Kirsty Whitlock, Artist

Artist Milou Stella is inviting you to stitch with her at this fortnightly embroidery meet up, and contribute to a community wall hanging. What’s your story?

What to expect

Artist Milou Stella will guide you through the process of embroidery step by step. Share a memory, bring a photo, stitch a message to someone you love or lost. This intimate project has ‘you’ at its heart.

Materials are provided but you’re welcome to bring a sentimental piece of fabric that you’re happy to donate to the final piece.

This is a free event however we ask for a small donation on the door to cover costs of materials. Booking recommended to guarantee your place.
