What happens in this class?

Embroidery is not the quickest way to create an image, but it shows dedication, perseverance, care, skill, patience and creativity. What better way to show our appreciation to the controversial trailblazers of feminism than to take the time to stitch a likeness of them?

With embroidery, you can use colour, texture, images or words. You can be quick and dirty or supremely skilled. There is no limit to what you can do with it, and in the hands of modern makers it's subversive, beautiful and infinitely varied.

Really great introduction to embroidery. I had never done it before, and the tutor Eleanor was really encouraging. You also get to take away some threads to finish it off at home!

London is a hub of creativity, culture, and of course, craft, but it’s also a terrible time thief. London Craft Club founder, Sonia, used to be a member of an awesome little group called Crafty Mums.

Work, commuting, parenting and all the rest seemed to leave no time to do all the fabulous craft projects that were possible. Sonia really believed that crafting can be so good for you. Good for socialising, good

I had such a good time and learned so much! It was the perfect activity for a lazy rainy day. I woke up today (day after) so excited and I am sitting here trying to finish up what I started yesterday - I highly recommend it ;)

The workshop was brilliant. Teacher fabulous and I thought really nice to have someone from LCC there as well. I can't wait to try everything I learnt. Only downside was the venue - lots of flies and not great light, which for embroidery is tricky with my slightly aging eyes. But I would go again!
