Dionne Swift Stitch Workshop in Italy

Stitched Sketchbook with artist, Dionne Swift 5 Days

 21st May - 25th May 2018

4th October- 9th October 2018

€1250.00 all inclusive

(small group of 7 )

For me the processes of drawing and sewing are intertwined, but underpinned by observations and understandings of a place. Join me to develop your knowledge of this beautiful Italian location whilst deepening your appreciation of drawing techniques and indulging in a love of stitch. We will start by creating our own books and by overcoming the fear of working on a clean page! Each day I shall offer you a new focus and direction with intriguing exercises to push your creativity and explore your potential. All the ideas can all be easily adapted to working purely on paper if you don’t have a textile inclination...the choice is yours.
This is a week of creativity, Italian culture, food, wine and wonderment - I hope you can join me.
