Everyone is welcome  – Creative Stitching @thegallery ideally suits participants who are intentionally developing their textie art practice and consolidating contemporary stitching techniques in order to prepare art work for exhibition, art competitions, study assignments or journalling.

Creative Stitching @thegallery is an opportunity to network, participate  in mini tutorials, access ideas and share resources with each other. The day will be facilitated in a mentored format. Regional textile artist Christine Lethlean will guide  participants to practice intuitive decision making,  provide roving support for those with evolving projects and revise techniques if required.
