Stitch-School

About this project

Stitch-School is founded by Melanie Bowles and Aimee Betts in 2017 to encourage, inspire and teach hand embroidery through workshops, events and kits.
They install the three meter Supper Cloth which aims to bring people together offering a chance to get away from mobile devices and embrace the resurgence of hand embroidery. The digital printed linen stretched on the table providing a base to practice and focus on stitching as well as encouraging conversation through communal making.
