Stitched Art Workshop in Greece
July 2-9, 2017 — We invite you to explore one of the world’s most beautiful, historic, and meaningful places: Greece, the cradle of modern civilization and home to spectacular scenery. Join talented textile artist Natalya Aikens and learn how to create hand stitched textural landscapes on the fly, to interpret the scenes before us with stitches and fabric, instead of with brushes and paints. As we wander the storied streets of Greece, we’ll pick out a special spot and make a thread sketch of the scene. We’ll snap a few pictures of the scene and later, in the hotel, we’ll work on the details while looking at our pictures as reference. Over the course of our workshop, we’ll balance sightseeing with sketching, creating and stitching. Visit website

Textile Art Workshop with Linda Matthews
September 13-19, 2017 — Linda currently teaches digital and sewing techniques, and loves nothing more than sharing and inspiring others to think, sew and make textile art in a creative way. As we travel, we’ll pay attention to the small moments, the beautiful moments, the moments that touch our hearts. Then we’ll collect the memories that we want to remember and incorporate them into beautiful textile art “fragments” - small stitched textiles that are a fusion of fabrics, fibers and papers, images and words, and found objects. All these pieces are hand stitched together using a free-form sewing technique to form a beautiful collaged fabric travel journal that contains secret pockets and places to hold the things we most want to remember about this trip.
