7 October, 10.30-3.30pm – £5, booking is required, 01252 713208 / gallery@newashgate.org.uk (If the cost of the workshop, £5, is prohibiting you from attending it, please email us for a free place).

Slow down, take the time to observe and develop mindfulness through stitch. Responding to the shapes and colours in the beautiful Bishop’s Meadow nearby, the students will explore simple mark making. Under Textile Artist Ekta Kaul’s gentle guidance you will evolve a personal vocabulary of hand stitches inspired by mark making. Ekta will also share processes and techniques that she uses within her own work. A Wabi-Sabi approach will be explored. This course is suitable for beginners and experienced sewers.

Ekta Kaul is an award winning textile artist and experienced educator who explores places, histories and belonging through stitched maps.

The workshop is part of the Surrey Artist of the Year season and also celebrating the Farnham Craft Town Month. It is supported by the Patricia Baines Trust.
