8. Rainbow wall hanging beginner's embroidery workshop
Learn to stitch your own wall hanging in this workshop with embroidery artist Katie Wells. The workshop is hosted at the brand new Elephant Stores in collaboration with SoLo Craft Fair and Little Louie café and bar. You’ll learn all the basic embroidery stitches (satin, French knot, running, split and lazy daisy), plus lots of other tips and tricks to get you started. We’ll be working on a rainbow embroidered wall hanging in golden autumnal tones. You’ll start your embroidery in class and finish at home (or you’ll be offered the chance to finish it at a future workshop at a discounted rate if you’d rather). This is a beginner’s class but if you already have a bit of experience it’s a great way to brush up on your skills. There will be no more than 6 people in the workshop. During the class, social distancing will not always be possible as you may need to gather close in order to see demonstrations. Please wear a mask if you feel more comfortable but note that I will not be doing so as it makes it difficult to teach. I am fully vaccinated and I test regularly to make the workshops as safe as possible. Accessibility: The venue is fully accessible but please let me know in advance if you have any accessibility needs so that I can make sure everything is safe and comfortable for you. If you have auditory, visual or any other needs, please get in touch so we can discuss how I can make the workshop more inclusive on the day.
