What you will do

Single session

Join textiles designer Rebeckah Kemi Apara in a two hour embroidery workshop. Learn how to transfer a design, split the thread, thread a needle and decorate with different stitches. Tote bags will be provided for you to stitch on or bring your own item of clothing to decorate.

Rebeckah and her assistant will show you how to create your own designs and will provide magic paper for you to transfer on your tote bag.

You will be shown various stitches and ways of using the embroidery equipment (all provided). Don't worry if you've never sewn before as instructions and examples will be outlined during the workshop.

As well as learning how to embroider each attendee will leave with a goody bag to continue stitching in their own free time. West Elm is a perfect place to be inspired by for craft and surface decoration ideas.

Embroidery Workshop in West Elm by Embellished Talk - crafts in London

About your host, Embellished Talk

Embellished Talk is a space to explore textiles through digital content and creative workshops.  Founded in 2016 by textiles designer Rebeckah Kemi Apara. Rebeckah graduated with a degree in Fashion Textiles from the London College of Fashion in 2007 and specialised in silk screen printing. After graduating Rebeckah taught herself how to hand sew using embroidery and embellishments.

With her platform, she has collaborated with the not-for- profit organisation GURLS TALK, founded by fashion model Adwoa Aboah and hand embroidered their t-shirts to raise money for The Baytree Centre. She runs hands on creative workshops where attendees learn the craft of embellishment and embroidery. 

Previous workshops have taken place in London Fields Primary School, WAH Nails, West Elm, WeWork, Second Home, Boxpark Shoreditch, Warehouse and the perfectly pink café Palm Vaults. Rebeckah likes to run her workshops in exciting, inspiring and approachable venues.

Rebeckah teaches all levels from beginner to advanced.
