Quilting and Textiles Sewing Retreat

31st January, 4:00 pm to 4th February, 2:00 pm


A sample of Boro – a Japanese technique to repair clothing

Naked in Eden; Clothed with Christ

This retreat is an invitation to explore and reflect on how we see clothing and nakedness, the significance of clothing and what the Bible says about clothing and colour. There will be time and space to learn new stitching techniques, and make (or at least start) a textile project of your choosing. Ideas for individual projects will be available. There will also be an underlying theme of “Remaking – repurposing – recycling – reusing” in the sewing projects.
