Contemporary Mr X Stitch – DCA Workshop
Challenge all of your pre-conceptions about contemporary cross stitching with Mr X Stitch himself, aka Jamie Chalmers, who will be leading the DCA’s Craft Sunday workshop on Sunday 26 August 2012.
Since setting up Mr X Stitch in 2008, Jamie has showcased new talent in the world of textiles and stitch and has curated a number of stitch-based exhibitions in the UK and Ireland. A stitcher for over ten years, he is an internationally exhibited artist and the curator of PUSH Stitchery, featuring 30 contemporary embroidery artists from around the world. He has also written articles for textile publications across the world, including FiberArts magazine and Surface Design Journal, and is a regular guest on CrossStitcher magazine. You can read more about Mr X Stitch here and read his popular blog, here (how cool is the superhero alphabet?!).
Jamie believes in the benefits of stitching, both from a relaxation and a sustainability perspective. Check out his website and visit his book shop for a great source of ideas. Through this workshop you will get the chance to learn a thing or two about the art of cross stitch and its role in contemporary craft.
