Introduction to Hand Embroidery

Sunday 21st May 2023, The Lookout Studio, The Base

Unfortunately this workshop has been cancelled, if you have booked a place the Box Office will be in touch shortly.

This beginner’s hand embroidery workshop will introduce you to a number of simple and intermediate hand embroidery stitches.

A design kit including fabric, threads, needle, embroidery hoop, embellishments and stitch plan will be provided, with pencils and scissors available to borrow.

We will experiment with all the stitches together during the class on your choice of either a flower or leaf motif, starting with the very simple and then exploring some slightly more complex combinations. We will also aim to add a few embellishments and spangles to enhance your embroidery. By the end of the workshop, you should feel confident to complete any unfinished work at home.

Duration: 1pm - 4pm

A material kit is included. Please bring embroidery scissors, hoops etc. with you if you have them. A notebook and pencil will be useful to make notes.

All tickets must be booked in advance.

There is no need to print or collect a ticket as the team will have a record of those who have booked. Booking for workshops and courses close 24 hours before the start time. Please note we reserve the right to cancel any course or workshop if the minimum numbers are not met. If we are not able to run a workshop you will be informed three working days ahead of the course or workshop start date.
