Sunday 10th of May :: A wondrous day of stitch & creativity with Tif Fussell
Come and spend a delightful day with Autumn (Tif) Fussell on the Isle of Skye fabricating accolades, lavalieres and talismans from found fabrics and trinkets. All materials will be provided including some special pieces handdyed at Shilasdair in the surroundings of Culnacnoc, near Staffin just for you! fret not if you stitching is basic, for Autumn is a huge fan of organic random stitching and is often quite perturbed if her stitching looks too precise or even.
These pieces are made with an intention to a word or thought or color or feeling and through it usually only the maker/wearer is aware of what that might be and just by looking or feeling their Make they are transported to a moment, a time, a sense of wonder, awe, safety, kindness or ease.
