Making the Rounds: Connie Flynn textile workshop

Dates

  • Tuesday, 4 June 2024 • 13:00 - 16:00

Event description

Join artist Connie Flynn for a workshop inspired by 2024 exhibition 'Making the Rounds: stories of workhouse nurses told in textiles.'

Attendees will be welcomed to view and reflect on the exhibition itself with the artist, followed by a relaxed stitch-based workshop. Using recycled fabrics like repurposed unused bandages (and any additional textiles that attendees wish to bring with them), Connie Flynn will guide all to create their own decorative fabric book to take home. Techniques will include hand stitching, embroidery, applique, patchwork and darning.
The work can be complete in itself, or be continued at home after the workshop, depending on attendees' own speed of working and preferred level of detail.

Attendees are welcome to stay on site after the workshop finishes until the site itself closes at 5pm.
