A fantastic workshop where you can choose your own section of London to embroider. It felt like less of a class and more of a friendly coffee morning - with stitching. I will definitely be back to another course with Etka.

This class was a lovely, relaxing way to spend an afternoon learning a new skill. It was a small class of only two students so it felt like we had a lot of attention. Ekta was a great teacher, she was very knowledgeable about her subject and gave clear demonstrations of each of the stitches we learnt. I just wish the class had been longer so we could have spent more time on our maps! The venue was easy to get to in a good central London location.

I really enjoyed the "Make a Hand Embroidered Map of London" class with Ekta. She provided us with the map pattern and patiently taught us the basic embroidery stitches, as well as showing us some of her stunning pieces and discussing her process and inspiration for making them (and yummy cake and tea!). I really recommend this class if you're looking to start embroidery, or looking to make a unique and hand-made memento of London!

A lovely teacher, lovely environment. Would have loved to get a bit more done!! But at least now I have something to keep working on in front of the TV.
