Subversive Cross Stitch with The Curious Thing

March 16, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

£12.50

Join us for a relaxed evening of ‘alternative’ cross stitch. Be inspired to create for some frank and funny cross-stitch designs – perfect for presents, letting off steam or for livening up the guest bedroom!

No experience necessary, and all materials are provided. You’re welcome to bring your own pattern, make one up, or use one of the (many!) provided. Working with Iona from Say It Ain’t Sew, this class is guaranteed to be irreverent, welcoming and totally hilarious. Perhaps not one for the easily offended…!

About the tutor: Iona Barker is a sewing extraordinaire and owner of Say It Ain’t Sew, which runs sewing classes in Edinburgh and Glasgow to help get people back into the art of sewing. She is a former costume and fashion designer, running the wardrobe department at the Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow, and working at the Glasgow Hydro as seamstress for touring shows.

About The Curious Thing: The Curious Thing was born from an aspiration to create more opportunities for grown-ups to learn about all kinds of fascinating topics in a sociable, relaxed and – above all – a really fun environment. As a social enterprise, all profit from The Curious Thing is donated or reinvested to achieve social change.

Venue: TBC closer to the time (Central Stirling)
