What you will do
2.5 hour workshop
Choose an image or text (or bring one with you) and learn how to transfer it to fabric using some simple but effective stitches. You can then add some fabric for extra colour creating a completely unique piece of art. This is a great class for someone wanting to gain hand embroidery skills they can use again and again! Our teacher Amy Williams is passionate about textiles and studied Textile Design specialising in Embroidery at university. She will guide you through your first stitches getting to know how best to use your needle and thread, you'll learn: Satin stitch, French knots, split stitch, couching and back stitch! You will be able to relax and unwind while experiencing the proven mindfulness benefits of being creative - it is amazing! No experience required and it's BYOB. Tea and coffee also included. If you don't finish on time, you'll have everything you need to finish at home.
Some feedback on the wonderful Amy: "Exciting relaxing and fun, Amy was fab and so patient with us!" "Brilliant. Definitely going to book another class, Amy was great!"
