What you will do
2 hour class
Try your hand with classic traditional embroidery patterns or something more modern.
It’s all in the stitches and colours and it’s all down to you.
In this group workshop we will go through the basic terminology of embroidery and take a look at some helpful and useful equipment.
We will chat about floss thread and how to split it to change the thickness of your stitching and you will have a hoon on a piece of cloth to practice the basic embroidery stitches before you start your piece of embroidered art.
You will create your design on paper, or you can choose from a selection on hand which you will transfer onto calico, set this into an embroidery hoop then get stitching.
All materials and equipment is included in the cost of this workshop.
The fabric provided is 100% cotton calico, the embroidery floss is Anchor 100% cotton and you will receive a 5″ hoop.
You will also take home a needle and a few skeins of floss so you can finish your piece at home.
This style of stitching is slow and relaxing. So while you get lost in the repetitive motion of stitching, you will be able to get to know your fellow classmates, your new forever mates.
