Join artist Sophie Jones for a workshop creating collaborative drawings between parent and child.

During this workshop you will learn how to use embroidery and ‘draw with thread’ to transform your child’s mark making into a small calico tapestry to take home.

Leeds-based artist, Sophie Jones’ exhibition ‘A Tangled Thread’ celebrates childhood mark making and exploring young parenthood.  A Tangled Thread is a new body of work and the culmination of a twelve-month project in which Jones directly stitched into their daughter’s felt tip marks, captured onto calico.

This workshop is aimed at under 5’s and their parents/guardians, however older children are also invited to join, to learn how to embroider their own drawings. Please note, embroidery needles and sewing equipment will be present at the workshop and children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
