Join artist Steph Clarke in creating your own embroidery piece to take home inspired by one of the works in Licensed to Show Part 3. Which one will it be? That is a surprise!
This workshop is suitable for stitchers of all skill levels and all materials are included.
Steph Clarke is an artist, costume designer, chronic up-cycler, and workshop instructor who is constantly blending the old and the new. Hand her a beat-up leather coat, and she'll hand you back a vest, a pile of change purses, and a notebook cover, and the instructions to do it again yourself. Give her an old pillowcase and an inkjet printer, and she will transform her digital doodles into a fabric colouring book that can be made into custom iron-on patches. As the founder for #PatchesForPads, a portion of the proceeds from her patch and art sales are put towards purchasing feminine hygiene products for shelters, community groups, and food banks.
