This was the first workshop I had taken through Obby and it didn't disappoint. I Really enjoyed this workshop. Marigold's teaching style, i found straightforward and relaxed. Since the workshop I have been practicing the stitches shown in the workshop using the organic cotton, Marigold provided. I definitely look forward to further workshops

I spent the most wonderful afternoon learning embroidery stitches. Marigold provided us with a beautiful piece of organic fabric, with handprinted squares for us to practice our stitches on. We were given a kit with a mini hoop, needles, threads and an instruction sheet with Marigold's beautiful hand illustrations. We were also given tea and scrummy cakes! Marigold is a calm, patient teacher and is a very talented, creative maker. Such a wonderful, relaxing way to spend an afternoon, thanks Marigold! I'm looking forward to spending time on my new craft.

Marigold’s class was fantastic. I learnt a number of stitches, which I am now practicing at home. I was a complete beginner and Marigold was patient, informative and a great teacher! We had a lovely morning drinking tea and coffee whilst stitching, it was such fun!

I had an excellent time with Marigold. She was friendly and a great teacher. She showed me lots of stitches and I really liked what I came away with. It was lovely to be at her lovely studios and I even got a yummy free cake!

Beginner's Embroidery Workshop by Marigold The Maker - crafts in London

About your host, Marigold The Maker

Marigold started out as a Primary School Teacher and taught for 15 years in inner city London Schools. Her career culminated in a headship at an East London Primary School but in 2018 Marigold took the brave plunge to follow her heart and pursue a career as an artist and maker.

For years she'd pour over books such as "Makers of East London" and "Hackney Studios" on Sunday afternoons, dreaming wistfully of a life as a maker and now she finds herself a fully fledge full-time maker with a studio in Hackney Downs! Throughout her career in education, Marigold always really wanted to teach art. Personally, she found relief from the business of work in her many ongoing craft projects. She views craft projects and learning new creative skills as the perfect antidote to the over stimulus of the world of technology, internet and social media.

Growing up on a mountain in Wales without a TV gave Marigold plenty of time to develop her creativity. Coming from a family of crafters, the skills of sewing and embroidery were passed down to her through the generations of women. Now in the era of the internet, technology and social media, the need for making has never been higher. She wishes to pass on skills that give people an antidote to social media and a creative purpose for their hands. She is passionate about teaching skills such as embroidery, calligraphy and printing that bring people back into the present, create beautiful hand made objects as well as help sooth away anxiety.
