Draw & Stitch Permutations with Alysn Migelow-Marsden - Friday 20th November


Alysn will be showing us an improvised design technique which is spontaneous, straightforward and effective for everyone. You absolutely don’t have to be able to ‘draw’ or ‘design’, simply be willing to go with the flow! You don't need any previous history of drawing, stitch or textile work, everyone is welcome. During the day you may progress to stitching, but may also choose to work with paper and mark making exclusively.
