Slow Mindfulness Stitching 1W20 CANCELED
Explore line and color while stitching at a contemplative pace. Slow down your felting, your stitching, your practice, your breath so you can absorb new and inspiring ideas. Consider examples of artists from around the world who practice slow stitching on a daily basis. "As you practice slow and intentional stitching, your life, your attitude, your creativity, your health, your spirituality will benefit as a result." -Mark Lipinsky.

Eva Camacho makes felted clothing, decorations, jewelry, housewares and accessories at her company Lana Handmade, based in Northampton, Mass. She creates nuno felt by combining fine silk and the finest merino wool. Much of her work is inspired by nature. Eva grew up in Alcaudete, Spain. She sources wool from New England farmers and incorporates material from the woods into some of her work.
"I usually start by hand-dyeing the wool (with natural dyes I have created myself from plant matter), which is then felted together with fine silk. To create patterns on the silk, I use techniques such as free motion embroidery, hand-stitching, beading and printing. My work is the result of the fusion of the ancient art form of felt-making with modern techniques to create new and elegant styles."
