Fabric, wool and haberdashery
A day spent exploring and practicing basic embroidery. You will learn all aspects of getting started from fitting fabric into a hoop, keeping work clean, embroidery stitches and how to prepare the finished work to make a picture or cushion.
We will be working towards starting one of the Hawthorn Handmade Sampler Kits which will be included in the price of the workshop. These brilliant kits contain everything you will need with the exception of a small pair of scissors and you will be provided with a sheet of calico and embroidery thread in order to practice the stitches before commencing on your chosen kit. The cost of £45 includes the purchased kit.
Alternatively, we can make our own design, transferring it to fabric ready to embroider. In this case you will need to bring a small pair of scissors and an embroidery hoop, although both will be available for use on the day. All other materials will be provided.
