Aimed at absolute beginners and those wanting to brush up their skills, this Saturday class looks at a range of different hand stitches from a fundamental level, up to more complicated, decorative techniques. As well as learning how to do these stitches technically, you'll be encouraged to play with them; experimenting with scale, yarn, colour, pattern and overlaying to create a fun and adventurous pallet of stitches that you can use at home or work to produce exciting embroideries for a multitude of purposes.

Hand embroidery is a highly portable, therapeutic and accessible process that requires very little investment yet can yield sumptuous, beautiful and expensive looking results. This Saturday class will start you off with technical basics and the fundamentals of how to use your new-found skills in a creative and fun way. You can bring in your own design, choose to make a dictionary of stitches for yourself or just freestyle it!

This class was a really great introduction into understanding hand embroidery. The studio is a bright airy, contemporary space in Hackney. Olivia is a warm, patient and friendly tutor who greeted us with croissants, tea and biscuits, and taught us a number of different techniques and showed us how these could be manipulated to create different effects. We were given ample time to practice and play and were individually attended to for any help/queries. It is a very relaxed and welcoming environment.
