About "Don't Get Cross, Cross Stitch!"
Learn the art of subversive cross stitch with Craft Guerrilla by getting crafty and slightly sweary at this friendly workshop, where you'll learn to create your very own expressive cross stitched hoop.
Channel your inner tensions into decorative textiles. Rude, lewd, crude or just plain honest - this workshop is a playful take on the traditional 'home sweet home' sampler. Instead we celebrate chaos, discord and everyday stresses by keeping our hands busy and making peace with life's many micro-aggressions!
The class is all in good humour and during the 2 hour workshop, participants will be guided through the basics of cross stitching as well as a simple lesson in layout, so you can transfer your design from paper onto fabric.
This "Flow" inducing workshop promises to be a lot of fun and will also encourage thoughtful and reflective action through creative craft therapy. All materials, including wall hoop will be provided so you can go away with your very own piece of modern cross stitch art to hang, pride of place in your home.
A little note about the workshop:
Did you know that "flow" has been equated to meditation? True, performing a repetitive action (like in knitting or cross stitch) can help bring on a state of mind of relaxation as well as a sense of well being. And also boffins have studied that sweary people are better adapted at dealing with stress!
*Please note that the ticket price includes a drink on arrival. There is also a fully functioning bar/cafe on site.
