Stitching workshop at Dover Museum

Posted on May 16, 2016

On 22 November 2014, Rosie James led a stitching and bunting-making workshop inspired by Dover Museum’s World War 1 exhibition.

The stitching workshop  went well. We had 6 attendees which although less than the 10 expected it gave us more room. Lynda was really helpful in setting up. The education room is perfect for sewing machines and vast amounts of fabric. The participants were very enthusiastic and all created quite different responses to the WW1 exhibition. Thanks to Alison for the old blankets. We ran out of time a bit but it certainly focused everyone! (Rosie James)

Here is a flavour of what people said afterwards:

The best thing about the workshops:

  • The experience of the course leader, and lots of textile techniques
  • The chance to reflect and create. Also meeting a great teacher and participants. 

The most surprising thing:

  • I can’t work out which way to iron my bondaweb on without much debating and thinking.

The most interesting thing:

  • The detail in the sewn cards and why they were sewn.

Other comments:

  • Brilliant workshop, expertly run.
  • A pleasing few hours with like minded people sharing stories. Time for me to explore textiles
