Service Description

Forage by Lisa Mattock is about seeking out reclaimed and vintage textile treasures and upcycling them into beautiful pieces that speak to the soul of the stitcher. Forage are devotees of the art of slow stitching, embracing the idea of slowing down, and recognising the practical beauty of reclaiming, reusing and repurposing; enjoying the moment among friends and sharing the delight that breathing new life into old things can bring. Lisa’s popular classes and workshops embrace the art of slow stitching, which is anchored in the “make do and mend” and “waste not, want not” ethos of yesteryear. It is a nod to generations who came before, when reusing and recycling were both necessary and admirable. Slow stitching is not a complicated process relying on fancy, perfectly executed stitches and fastidious neatness, but rather, an embrace of the timeworn nature of our materials, and the individuality of our stitching methods. Simplicity and care are the keys. Stitching methods for this class are simple and repetitive. We will draw inspiration from the Japanese stitching methods of boro and sashiko as we take a mixture of repurposed, recycled, inherited, and vintage textiles to create the background for our artworks. Students will stitch their background using simple stab stitch to connect their pieces of upcycled cloth. A stitched silhouette can then be added as a finishing embellishment to the stitched cloth background. Date: Thursday 8 October Time: Meet at 7 Clovelly Road Randwick at 10.
