Slow Stitching - Woodland

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.

“The Woodland Series” is a nine panel quilt; each panel themed with a different woodland motif.

In this workshop we will work on the ‘Mushroom Panel’, but Lisa will also share with you the rest of the story so you can see how it all comes together if you choose to make the full quilt.

Each panel of the Woodland Quilt has its own ‘Starter Pack’ that includes template and instructions, plus a selection of new and vintage textiles specially sourced from France.

This class is suitable for all levels of experience.

*Students will also be expected to assist their tutor in a post-course clean down of the room & anything used during this time. Please understand we are putting in strict protocols across the board to ensure the safety of our entire community.

Materials List

Students will be supplied with a kit for each class, which is included in their class fee.  Lisa will supply a pdf called “students notes” to enrolled students. These notes will have suggestions/requirements on what else you may like/need bring to your workshop.

Tutor: Lisa Mattock

The groundwork for “Forage” was laid by a long and varied career in the creative industries. Lisa’s expertise as a textile artist, florist, food stylist, visual merchandiser, and with her own upmarket florist and homewares store in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, combined with her long-standing passions for vintage fabrics, recycling, and embroidery made “Forage” a natural evolution. Through workshops, events and collaborations with local designers, Lisa gets to follow and share her twin passions of discovering and collecting reclaimed fabrics and embellishments, and creating intricate layered textile artworks.
