Please join us for our June Book Club Meeting! We’ll be discussing Slow Stitch: Mindful and Contemplative Textile Art by Claire Wellesley-Smith. The book is a guide to adopting a less-is-more approach, valuing quality over quantity, and bringing a meaningful and thoughtful approach to textile practice. Claire Wellesley-Smith introduces a range of ways in which you can slow your textile work down, including:
- Using simple techniques inspired by traditional practice (including hand-stitch rhythms);
- Reusing and re-inventing materials (reuse even old textile projects);
- Limiting your equipment; and
- Mending revisited (practical and decorative techniques).
Richly illustrated throughout, and showcasing work from the best textile artists who work in this way, this is a truly inspirational book for those looking to reconnect with their craft and to find a new way of working.
