Stitching by hand is wonderful way in which to enrich simple mark making on fabric or paper, whether it be abstract or pictorial.  You will be given an already painted piece of fabric in a watery ‘pattern’ to interpret in your own way, using a number of simple stitches and their variations.  With a focus on colour, line and texture, Monique will demonstrate how she enriches painted backgrounds with stitching.
