ArtKeeper | Very Cross Stitch sessions with Tal Fitzpatrick

Are you quietly seething?

If so, then HOTA’s ArtKeeper artist in residence Tal Fitzpatrick invites you to come try your hand at embroidery because, as she assures us, ‘there is nothing more relaxing than stabbing something hundreds of times with a needle.’ 

Tal is a feminist artist best known for her creative and academic work in the field of craftivism and socially engaged art making. As part of her ArtKeeper residency Tal’s working on a largescale figurative textile artwork exploring the power and pain of feminine rage.  

In this participatory, informal, and fun workshop style event, Tal invites you into her studio at HOTA to try your hand at cross-stitching and have a chat about what’s making you cross. 

These drop-in sessions are appropriate for anyone over the age of 10, even if you’ve picked up a sewing needle in your life! 

You’ll have the option of either doing your own cross-stitch on a piece of Aida cloth OR stitching directly onto Tal’s large artwork! 

These sessions are drop-in style - you can stay for as little or as long as you like, contributing a little or a lot. 

Drop-in sessions 10am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-3pm.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts as part of HOTA's ArtKeeper 2024 Public Program.
