For Your Pleasure We Present: Stitched Slogans Inspired by the Seaside

with Sarah Pain

Thu 1 June 2023
11:00 am
- 3:00 pm

The Workshop

This special workshop for 11–15-year-olds will begin with the chance to explore Signs of the Seaside and scope out some ideas for a fun day ahead of stitching and collage.

Taking inspiration from the bold and brazen slogans of the seaside, participants will create their own stitched slogan, and turn it into their very own textile message.

Workshop leader Sarah Pain will guide participants through slow stitch techniques, teaching the skills of collage and colour pairing. The finished patch can be made into a striking wall hanging, alternatively, participants can bring their own t-shirt or item of clothing to sew their new patch onto.

Please bring a packed lunch.
