Workshop: Sensory Stitch
Sensory Stitch workshop with Augusta Phillipou
During the workshop Augusta will run through some basic stitches using a range of tactile materials, to explore the sensory potential of stitch. The session intends to encourage the use of embroidery practice to connect the participant to the senses, specifically sight and touch. The workshop is aimed at any ability and explores the potential benefit of sensory stitch processes on well-being.
Processes covered in the session include running stitch, backstitch, seed stitch, whip stitch and couching using a range of textiles materials and non-conventional textile materials. This session will explore the way that stitch allows a steady focus and can be an effective way to manage anxiety, depression, steady heart rate and reduce social isolation.
