Stitch and Weave Writing Workshops

Image of Stitch and Weave Writing Workshops


In the cosy atmosphere of Mulberry and Flax, Newcastle, we take inspiration from woven and printed cloths from exotic lands. From hand spun wools and natural dyed felts and threads, we weave a connection between the fabrics we love to touch and wear, and our writing.

Telling the stories of cloth — of sewing, knitting and weaving, we give voice to our mothers, grandmothers, and our own tales of sitting with needles clacking, and treadle machines whirring.

Using fabric and thread as our starting point we find ways to the tell stories that lie close to our hearts while learning how to embroider descriptive detail into the pages of our work.
