Join artist Ellie Beck from Petal Plumb to create a beautiful hand stitched pouch to carry your precious everyday items.

Slow down in the museum this Autumn with artist Ellie Beck from Petal Plumb and create a beautiful hand-stitched pouch to carry your precious everyday items. A workshop inspired by our current textile exhibition, Social Fabric.

Ellie will guide you through the creative process, tapping into your personal expression as you construct your unique pouch from linens and recycled special fabrics.

You will also learn different stitching styles using various fabrics and types of thread, as well as sustainable approaches to sewing; all of which you can take home and be creative on your other hand sewing projects.

We encourage you to bring along a friend or family member and create together. This is an intergenerational workshop for children over 8 years old and their caregivers.

Suitable for ages 8 y/o +

Children under 12 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

About Ellie Beck

Ellie is an artist, author, creative maker & educator. Ellie love’s the quiet of crafting & art-making alone, but also feel energised by spending time with other creatives sharing time together, stitch by stitch, word by word. Her work and workshops take the form of writing, textiles, photography, or a whole lot of unfinished pieces that never see the light of day.

Visit Ellie Beck’s website for more info.
