Event description

Description

Explore the role of craft in getting through life’s challenges – whether it be illness, grief, stress or general hardship. Engaging in craft can be as simple as creating a distraction to as complex as the creation of a work that is symbolic of resilience and recovery. In this experiential workshop we will use the ‘simple’ running stitch as a medium for exploring the processes of healing and growth. You will start your own project using linen, needle and thread that may be completed as a cushion, bag, wall hanging or perhaps become an ongoing ‘stitch diary’ of your personal experience. Megan (psychiatrist and craftswoman) and Deanne (architect and psychology graduate) will discuss examples in which people have used a variety of craft media to live with or work through challenging times, illness or pain, loss and grief. Megan will demonstrate a variety of stitching techniques and Deanne will guide you through a design process to help bring meaning and mastery to your experience. Projects can be completed at follow-up Shared Threads crafternoons.

Materials will be supplied.
