Nasty with a sewing needle? Embrace your inner rage and subversion in this relaxed and open sewing session for all abilities with artist Andrea Bonnell.

Subversive stitch takes traditional cross stitching techniques and applies it to feminist activism. Embroider with us the rudest and most powerful slogans you can think of, subverting the perception of a traditionally gentle and feminine art medium.

Open to all genders, this relaxed and chilled afternoon is perfect to meet likeminded people and to be inspired by national artworks. From experience stitchers to those just starting, Andrea will be on hand to welcome you and support your artwork.

  • 1pm Andrea will lead you on a free tour around the exhibition Women Power Protest gathering inspiration and design ideas for your perfect stitch.
  • 2 - 4pm Relaxed drop in art session with Andrea in the gallery learning space. Music, good company, needles, hoops, silks and cloth all provided. A great afternoon to share with friends, make new ones or add to the artwork Andrea will be making live in the space.
