Institute of Making
Richard was invited to run a masterclass at the UCL Institute of Making. For this workshop McVetis drew on his love of stitching, paying attention to time, labour and care to develop a day of stitching. The workshop explore a combination of traditional hand embroidery techniques, taking inspiration from the textures and patterns found in the Institute of Making materials library. Participants explores the slowness and rhythms of hand stitching; the versatility and strengths of embroidery for drawing and mark making; and the pleasure in having time to make.
This workshop is part of the Festival of Stuff.
