The Stitch Roadshow moves across London - north west to Harlesden. We'll be running a ten-week course this autumn at the Asian Women's Resource Centre (AWRC). These classes - based on our new embroidery packs - will be free and open to all. They'll start on 23 September and run from 11am to 1pm every Thursday after that until 25th November. With Royal School of Needlework tutors (who will attend four sessions) We'll study surface stitches, goldwork, crewelwork and blackwork. Materials will be provided free and background information about the motifs (inspired by western and Islamic traditions) will - we hope - spark interesting debate. One of the best things about these classes, undoubtedly (I've eaten at the AWRC before!), will be the Lunch Club. A limited number of creche places will also be available.
This course is funded by Faiths in Action, a grants programme open to faith, inter-faith, voluntary and community sector organisations sponsored by Communities and Local Government.
