The Friends of St Mark’s and the B Arts Space to Connect group have worked together to design a guide to help you make a stained glass window from card and tissue paper. There is also a video demonstration we asked artist Richard Redwin to do for us.

Stitch Around Time Heritage Textiles Craft Guide

Express your own heritage using fabric, thread and simple sewing.

Cultural Sisters worked with us to share their sewing skills with a group of people in Shelton. They created a simple guide they gave to people along with a kit of materials. You can put your own kit together and use the guide to create your own circle of lovely textile art.

You will need:

  • A sewing ring (aka an embroidery hoop)
  • Embroidery threads
  • Needles and pins
  • A variety of fabric squares and some decorative trim
  • Scissors
  • A snippet of some personal fabric, beads and threads if you like

Friends of St Mark’s

You are invited to join the Friends of St Mark’s. The Friends are all people with a connection to St Mark’s Church, themselves or through their family.

The Friends work closely with All the Small Things to plan and run community activities.
