//Don't Get Cross, Cross Stitch!//
 //13th of June 2018, New Road Hotel, E1 1HJ London// 
"Subversive cross stitch workshop!"
 

Book your tickets here: https://ticketlab.co.uk/event/id/1336


Learn the art of subversive cross stitch with Craft Guerrilla by getting crafty and slightly sweary at this friendly workshop, where you'll learn to create your very own expressive cross stitched hoop.
Channel your inner tensions into decorative textiles. Rude, lewd, crude or just plain honest - this workshop is a playful take on the traditional 'home sweet home' sampler. Instead we celebrate chaos, discord and everyday stresses by keeping our hands busy and making peace with life's many micro-aggressions!

The class is all in good humour and during the 3 hour workshop, participants will be guided through the basics of cross stitching as well as a simple lesson in layout, so you can transfer your design from paper onto fabric.

This "Flow" inducing workshop promises to be a lot of fun and will also encourage thoughtful and reflective action through creative craft therapy. All materials, including wall hoop will be provided so you can go away with your very own piece of modern cross stitch art to hang, pride of place in your home.
*Please note that the ticket price includes a drink on arrival. There is also a fully functioning bar/cafe on site.
