Instructor: Judy Martin
Process: Stitching/ Quilt
Workshop Duration: Three Day
Date: Friday 16, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October, 2015
Location: Neddies Harbour Inn
Presentations of archetypal imagery from around the world and how these marks and shapes connect with our spiritual need for ritual are the inspirational basis for original and personally scaled meditation panels. Hands on instruction in Judy’s improvisational methods of working over foundation cloth in combination with more traditional hand piecing, reverse appliqué and hand embroidery will start participants on a project that will continue to nurture the maker over a period of months.
This is a quiet workshop.
Judy Martin exhibits her work in public art galleries in Canada. She holds a first class honours BA degree in Embroidered Textiles from Middlesex University, London, England and has taught and spoken at a national level about the power and beauty of hand stitching. She brings to this conference the experience she gained from leading the successful Manitoulin Community Circle Project in which over 100 women made several hand-stitched meditation panels for the local community during four years of weekly meetings.
