Beginners Hand Embroidery
19th February 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm£40
Fabric, Thread and a Needle: a beginner’s hand embroidery workshop
Welcome to a journey into making marks using just a needle and thread. Spend a few hours exploring the decorative possibilities with Mary Wyatt.
All sewing starts with posting a needle through fabric – hand embroidery is as simple as that. Master the basics and then the possibilities are endless – alter the stitch size, group several together, make them into a cross. Stitch in a circle, a spiral. Shape them into waves, flowers…
In this workshop you will investigate a handful of simple stitches, then you will be ready to make your first embroidered picture in a wooden embroidery hoop. The finished picture will be ready to hang up as soon as you get home.
You don’t need any embroidery skills or any special equipment, just enthusiasm!
All materials and equipment will be provided.
