In this workshop, textile artist Ekta Kaul invites you to tune into nature, using stitch to connect to foliage found on a savoured walk. Research shows that we experience a marked enhancement in our emotional well-being when we take ‘a stroll in which we intentionally shift attention outward instead of inward’. Stitching produces a similar meditative state by focusing on the journey of the needle and thread on cloth. Ekta will guide you through the process of interpreting your foliage into stitch, how to create a pattern and select the right stitches in this relaxing online session.
