WORKSHOP : July 5, 2014.
Introduction to Creative Embroidery
Two designers (Drawing Threads) show you some neat tricks when it comes to thread!
This is a beginner course to creative embroidery where we will be showing you how to combine basic embroidery stitches, drawing and found images to create little works of art.
You will master basic embroidery stitches and be given the confidence to bend the rules and make up your own – we don’t like to follow the rules, and we aim to give you the confidence and techniques to continue making your own art in your own way!
You will get the chance to experiment with iron-on images and illustration alongside the embroidery. These are all techniques that you can continue to do at home.
Participants will be supplied with their own goody bag which will include an embroidery hoop, needle, a page of iron-on image transfers, templates and motifs, plus a comprehensive booklet which will include the instructions for the stitches and techniques. Each will be able to pick from a choice of fabric and threads and other materials to use on the day.
The 3 hour session is plenty of time to complete your work of art, but if you want to use that time to experiment and complete your work at home, then we will ensure you go home with all the materials and knowledge that you need!
Tickets cost £16.55 (which includes the admin fee).
Biscuits and drinks will be provided, although there is also a on-site cafe in the Craft and Design Centre!
